A few more books than last quarter with 35 books, but fewer pages (11,438). I would guess that's because I read several juvenile and young adult books this quarter. I'm continuing to use the page count from the mass market paperback as the number of pages for books I read on the Kindle.

Only three of the books this quarter qualify as Chunksters. Oath of Gold had 501 pages, On Basilisk Station had 464, and The Honor of the Queen also had 464. Interestingly, all three of those were read on the Kindle.
