Bout of Books

The Official Blurb:

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, January 4th and runs through Sunday, January 10th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 15 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team

The List:

  • The Runaway King by Jennifer A. Nielsen
  • Thread Reckoning by Amanda Lee
  • How to Rescue a Rake by Jayne Fresina
  • The Shadow Throne by Jennifer A. Nielsen

How I’m Feeling Today: I didn’t get nearly as much reading in as I had hoped but I did put effort into socializing and blogging. Normally at this point in Bout of Books I’m giving up because I haven’t aced all my goals. Not so this time and I can’t even say I’m disappointed. I’m pretty sure that shows growth. 🙂

How I’m Feeling Today: I didn’t come anywhere near my reading goals for this Bout of Books and that makes me sad. I am super excited to say that this is the first Bout of Books that I actually made my social goals. I still read enough for me to be happy but it wasn’t an excessive amount of reading. I have to say I am pretty happy with where I ended and that is good enough for me. 🙂

      I haven’t had much time to read this week but my weekdays are always super busy. I get most of my reading in on the weekends so Saturday and Sunday should be great!
