Closing Survey

How would you assess your reading overall?
I beat what I had read the last few years and I really enjoyed what I read.

Did you have a stategy, and if so, did you stick to it?
Start with easy books in the morning as it's my toughest time. I stuck with it and it worked.

What was your favorite snack?
Reese's pumpkins
