Dear Diary,

So far this term I’ve read 5 books. The historical fiction book I read had 20 pages more than the mystery. Together, they have 42 pages more than the classic. The sports story that I’m reading is the shortest of all. I’m on page 70 and am halfway through. The sports story has 10 fewer pages than the biography. When I am finished, I will have read 968 pages all together. My teacher wants to know how many pages are in each book. What should I tell her?
