19 Aug

Day 7 Update:

Pages Read Today: 364
Total Pages Read: 690
Books Completed:  1.78
Comments: Well this week just didn’t go as planned.  A medical emergency took my time and energy from the readathon.  I quickly gave up trying to time my reading, but tried to keep reading.  When I was awake and alert enough, I grabbed my book.  I think I did quite well considering.  I’ll be waiting for the next Bout of Books readathon to redeem myself.

My goals:

  • Read 5 books — nope
  • Review all book read — nope
  • Complete at least two challenges — nope
  • Read an average of 2:30 hours a day — nope

My TBR pile:

  • HP 7
  • A Kiss in Time by Alex Flinn
  • Mythology by Edith Hamilton
  • Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen
  • Persuasion by Jane Austen
  • Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K. Dick
  • Emma by Jane Austen
  • Richard III by Shakespeare
  • Antony and Cleopatra by Shakespeare
  • Much Ado About Nothing by Shakespeare
  • Restoring Grace by Katie Fforde
  • A Truth Universally Acknowledged edited by Susannah Carson
  • Added — The Subtle Knife by Philip Pullman
  • Added — The Amber Spyglass by Philip Pullman (in progress)

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, August 13th and runs through Sunday, August 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 5.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. -From the Bout of Books 5.0 team
