#BoutofBooks Day 4 Update and Day 5 Challenge! 🎉❤ . . .
Yesterday was not a very good reading day for me. I did manage to read at least 100 pages, though! To be specific, I read 116 pages! The final 62 in Taste of Marrow by @gaileyfrey (2nd book, finished! it was excellent!) and the first 54 in Hoodoo by @ronsmithwriter. 😊❤ . . .
I had hoped to finish Hoodoo yesterday, but I didn't get the chance to really sit down and focus on it until it was after 9p. So I paused at the start of Chapter Six on page 55 because I was feeling tense and it was very dark outside and too quiet inside. 😨 (And I do love pages that are divisible by five! 😄) ❤ . . .
Now that it's daylight again, I'm going to resume reading, but first! #NewspaperHeadlines are today's Day 5 Challenge! For Hoodoo. . . 📰 "His People's Fate in Boy's Hands!" 📰 . . . . 😄❤ . . .

Certainly that morbid poison
Happily sold.' '"Survival of the Fittest"
