This is for the week of August 29th-September 4th. I read 9 books which brings my 2021 total to 260 books read. These books totaled 2,603 pages. You might be wondering how I can read so much in a weeks time. The answer to that is that I always have a book with me. I carry my kindle with at times and during periods at work I am able to read. I also listen to audio books as I work around the house, getting ready for work and as I run errands. Now onto the books that I read.
