December was a low(er) month for numbers of 26 books but 7,828 pages (or the equivalent) is nothing to sneeze at, and an average rating of 4 stars is likely my best yet!

 

I'm trying to not complain about how little I write (something new, I know)—but man...I did a bad job this month. But I really liked a couple of my posts more than I usually do, so there's that. Still, I've got to work on my planning so I can not fall so behind.

 

But that's for another day. Here's what happened here in December.
