Bout of Books

Bout of Books 21 starts today! If you aren’t signed up, don’t worry, you can still sign up! And if you want to read along but don’t want to be entered for the prizes, then you don’t even have to sign up and can just read along with us! I think this might be my favorite time of year for readathons because it’s the perfect time to sit back and relax after the crazy weeks of the holidays and cuddle with a warm blanket, hot drink and good book. It’s also great because I just made my reading goals for the year and can get a really good start with the help of the readathon. To help get as much reading done as I can, I’ll have lots on hand to choose from. I definitely will not read them all but here’s what I have with me:

The books I really want to finish:

If I have time or need something else to read:

If I need something quick to stay motivated:

Progress Updates

Monday

Books I’ve read today: All American Boys
Number of pages I’ve read today: 310
Total number of books I’ve finished: 1 (All American Boys)
Total pages read: 310

Thoughts: I was surprised at how quickly I was able to read AAB. It was a fantastic book and I’m glad it was the book club pick for the month. This BoB has started off well but it was also a snow day here so I had a lot of time to read that I wasn’t expecting. I hope the rest of the week also goes well.

 

Tuesday

Books I’ve read today: Modern Romance
Number of pages I’ve read today: 125
Total number of books I’ve finished: 2 (AAB, MR)
Total pages read: 435

Thoughts: I was halfway through MR already and realized my loan was going to expire so I had to finish reading it. And I’m glad I did. While I liked the audio more when I had that, the ebook was still okay to read and it went faster than I thought it would. Overall it was still a good reading day and I’m glad I was able to make some progress even though the beginning of the day was so busy.

 

Wednesday

Books I’ve read today: The Unicorn Quest
Number of pages I’ve read today: 60
Total number of books I’ve finished: 2 (AAB, MR)
Total pages read: 495

Thoughts: I knew today was going to be busy with not much time to read during the day but I didn’t expect to be so exhausted. I fell asleep very early and didn’t get a chance to read at night like I usually do so it was a much less productive day than I thought it would be. But I’m still glad I got something read. I’m hoping Thursday will be a little better even though it’ll be busy too and that I’ll be able to finish another book by Friday.

 

Thursday

Books I’ve read today: Saga Vol 8
Number of pages I’ve read today: 152
Total number of books I’ve finished: 3 (AAB, MR, Saga)
Total pages read: 647

Thoughts: I had really hoped to read more today than I did but I didn’t feel great when I woke up and then the afternoon was really busy. Then all I could manage in the evening was a graphic novel. I’m not upset, I’m glad I finally got to read it, but I’m really hoping I can get one more review book in before the readathon is over.

Friday

Books I’ve read today:
Number of pages I’ve read today:
Total number of books I’ve finished:
