Bout of Books Read-a-Thon

Today’s Progress:

  • Books Read: 0.1
  • Total Books Read: 5.1
  • Pages Read: 40
  • Total Pages Read: 1405
  • Time Read: 30 minutes
  • Total Time Read: 12 hour 38 minutes
  • #todayinsixwordds: Epic fail for the last day!

Another readathon completed.  I was hoping to read more than I did, but 5 books is respectable.  House chores seemed to get in the way.  And the weekend just went downhill from there.  At this point, I think I need to carve out some time every day to read.  As it stands, I keep getting distracted…

My Goals
  • Read at least 5 books √
  • Read my required reading for the month (Shakespeare and Harry Potter) — Epic fail of the week
  • Review all books read
  • Participate in at least 2 mini challenges — I only did one…  tried to focus on the reading.
  • Read an average of 2 hours a day — Close but nope

Books To Read

  • Anthony and Cleopatra by Shakespeare
  • Much Ado About Nothing by Shakespeare
  • Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
  • Starship Troopers by Robert Heinlein
  • Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie
  • The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri
  • The Frog Prince by Stephen Mitchell
  • A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray
  • Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters
  • Paris in Love by Eloisa James
  • The Reader by Bernhard Schlink
  • Something Borrowed by Emily Giffin — Started
