Bout of Books 2.0 Wrap Up Post

Posted October 31st, 2011 by in Bookish Events / 0 comments

I decided to join Amanda from On a Book Bender in her Bout of Books Read-a-thon. The read-a-thon started Monday, 10/24 and ended Sunday 10/30. I am proud to say that I actually accomplished my goals for this read-a-thon!!

Read-a-Thon Goals

  • Get caught up with my review books.
  • I’d like to finish two books. I’m still working 40 hours this week so I think I should be able to do this.

Books to Knock Out

  • Hades by Alexandra Adornetto
  • All These Things I’ve Done by Gabrielle Zevin

Other Books I’d Love to Get to

  • Promises, Promises by Erica James
  • Tall Dark and Cowboy by Joanne Kennedy
  • Lady Sophie’s Christmas Wish by Grace Burrowes

How Much Time I Intend to Read I’d like to get in 3 hours a day. It’d be ideal to get in more than that but I’m trying to be realistic.

Well I met my goal for a read-a-thon for the first time ever! I guess it helps to be realistic about what I know I can accomplish. I really enjoyed the two books that I read and liked catching up with some of my favorite characters in short stories. It was a good reading week! I didn’t have the chance to participate in any mini-challenges though I wish I had. Overall, I can’t wait to do it again. Thanks Amanda!!
