Read/listened to since last update: A few chapters of The Reader and almost all of Something Missing

Brief thoughts on what I’ve read: Something Missing is monopolizing my time because it has gotten extremely good. I will be recommending this one, so watch out!

  • The Phantom Tollbooth: 20 / 20 chapters read (DONE!)
  • The Reader: 19 / 46 chapters read
  • A Most Improper Magic: 0 / 21 chapters read
  • The Report (10 chapters done before Readathon): 10 / 48 chapters read
