Bout of Books 7.0 - Goals and Updates {Wrap-Up}


Updates (and any mini-challenges) are in the body of this post--scroll down

Bout of Books

The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, May 13th and runs through Sunday, May 19th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure, and the only reading competition is between you and your usual number of books read in a week. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 7.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team

If you'll scroll down, you will see that I didn't keep up with my daily updates. That's because life got in the way (meaning: work) and I just didn't have time to update every day. I did get some reading done, but not nearly as much as I wanted to. I tried though.

Here's what I read:
The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane by Katherine Howe (about 80 pages)
Roses Have Thorns by Sandra Byrd (finished: 336 pages)
Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro (50 pages)

Not too shabby, but not great either. Oh well, it is what it is. Here's to the next read-a-thon!


Oh how I love week long read-a-thons! We all know that though, don't we? I have a lot of reading going on this month so this comes at the perfect time. My plans are to catch up on read-a-long books and read at least one complete book (maybe more...what? I can dream). Here's my list:

The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane by Katherine Howe (read-a-long)
Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro (read-a-long)
The Hound of the Baskervilles by Arthur Conan Doyle (read-a-long)
Roses Have Thorns by Sandra Byrd
The Arrow Chest by Robert Parry
Silk Road by Colin Falconer

I may or may not participate in mini-challenges. Depends on how I feel, but I'm SO ready to get my read on. Mojo don't fail me!
