My library counts them for their summer and winter reading programs, so I don't give a shit what Red Mosquito thinks.

But, y'know ... whatever. I read over 50 physical books last year. But my choices are going to be a lot more interesting to talk about if I count audiobooks.

Your library has a winter reading program? :| We only have a summer one. And they just count hours read so that's boring as heck.

What is a trade paperback? Are those the books that combine 5-6 issues?

Yes.

Yeah, this year it was 12/15-1/31.

Every year they tweak it, but it's currently based on books read. The winter program is 3 books earns you a free book from the bookstore. Every 3 after that enters you in a drawing for local gift cards.

I think the summer was 20 hours read per entry.

I finished Uncharted 4 a while back. I'm just replaying the remastered versions. That was my 6th time through Uncharted 2. I only played Uncharted 4 once though. Which underwater part? Trying to remember.

Yes. I'm still stuck on it. I got there the very first night I owned the game and haven't picked it up since.

Oh I remember that being slow but I thought the game pretty much guided you through that part. You could always watch a walkthrough on youtube.

I tried that. It's okay. I'm sure I'll figure it out eventually. I'm obviously missing a step but I can't figure out what it is.
