Bout of Books

The Official Blurb:

The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda Shofner and Kelly Rubidoux Apple. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, May 13th and runs through Sunday, May 19th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, Twitter chats, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 25 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team

This will be a travel week for me so I’m not sure if I’ll get much reading done or not those two days. I think I’m going to make a push for 1,000 pages read for this round of Bout of Books. I like nice round numbers and big goals. This should satisfy both of them. I’m really kind of curious if I’ll be able to do it or not.

I’d also really like to be able to stick to updating this post. It’s almost like I get so wrapped up in the reading that I abandon the updating which is probably why a lot of you are here yes?

The Goal:

I’d like to read 1,000 pages and try to average two hours a day reading (minimum). I’ll be using Bookly to track both of these numbers and I’ll probably use it to update my status on social media.

The Updates:

Monday:

Reading: Starry Eyes by Jenn Bennett 160 – 315

How I feel about today: I’m feeling really good about today’s progress. I wish I had spent more time listening to my audiobook but I wasn’t very focused. I’m hoping to finish Starry Eyes tomorrow and move on to a new book. I’m enjoying this one but I am ready to be done with it.

Tuesday:

How I feel about today: Today I finished a book but I actually feel less accomplished than yesterday. I had hoped to finish Winter Vacation as well but we had furniture delivered yesterday and my hubby had other plans. Tomorrow is a new day though and today’s progress was still great!

Wednesday:

Reading: Baby-Sitters’ Winter Vacation by Ann M. Martin 40 – 119; Damsel by Elana K. Arnold 1 – 159

Total Pages Read Today: 239

Total Time Read Today: 3 hours 35 minutes
Total Time Read During Bout of Books: 6 hours 38 minutes
How I feel about today: I can’t tell you HOW happy I am I canceled my pre-order for Damsel. It is so not my type of book. But listening at 1.5 speed I should be able to finish this one tomorrow. Thankfully it is a quick audio. Narration isn’t my cup of tea either.

Thursday:

Total Time Read Today: 3 hours 17 minutes

How I feel about today: Damsel was awful. I’m glad it is over and a book that I borrowed from the library. I had family time tonight so I didn’t get as much reading time in today. I did however get in 2 hours of audio time during my commute so I feel like it balanced out.
