May Reads

I read 17 books in May. I read a total of 3,719 pages and listened to 49.76 hours of audio. At the end of May, I read book #68 of the year, and I decided to up my 2013 goal from 100 to 150 books. I think this new goal will be achievable if I keep reading at the same pace!

Of the books I read in May, 2 counted for a genre challenge and 1 was for a presidential biography challenge.
