Final Thoughts


While I debated moving on to the next level, I decided this is far as I'd go. I'm happy with how long it took me to complete, in fact, I'm surprised I finished it as early as I did. I read far more EBooks than I ever thought I would. Some notable books from the challenge: The Druid, Pigsong, and The Girl Who Lived on the Moon - are great short reads, only available on EBook. I also managed to re-read a childhood favourite. One of my favouite books was Song of the Silk Road.
