What have I read this year part 2?

In addition the 52 books I had read by July 31, 2018, I finished these 18 for a total of 70 books this year.  I have two partially read, I will finish one of them, and may finish or toss the other one.  I have a couple that I loaded on the Kindle and have not had the heart to read.

  1. Seriously - how on earth did you accomplish this? I see I read 15 and thought that 'decent'. Any tips on how to read 'more'?

  2. You read 70 books this year? Mamma mia. But I know how you do it -- it's because you travel so much. You read at airports and on the plane, amirite? Jeez, when I post my list of the 7 whole books I read this year, I'm going to blush. And not one of them was on your list.
