Bout Of Books: I’m In

Bout of Books

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 17th and runs through Sunday, August 23th 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 14 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team

 Count me in! I missed the last one because life is against me reading or blogging. It’s a long story but it includes thumb tendonitis, broken laptops, quitting smoking (I did it!!), uni work, family illness and a whole lot more. But no more! I am not taking it, I refuse not to read my books.

So I’m in.

Come join me.

My targets this bout:

  • Read every day – At least 100 pages. Not much, but with my record of not really reading for a few months this will be a good shove for me.
  • Update stats daily
  • Take part in some activities. 
  • Comment on blogs at least one day for an hour.  
I started on the 18th, so I missed a day. 
Daily page stats. 
18th – 76.
Book finished – Grey by E. L. James.
New book – The Heir by Kiera Cass

19th – zero.
Day trip stole my energy.
  
20th – zero.  Oops.
Tomorrow has 2 hour long train journeys There surely should be some pages.

21st – 23 pages.
The heir is interesting so far,  but it seems to be lacking somewhere and I can’t put my finger on it.  Hopefully it will pick up.

22nd – Zero.  But I did buy books.
Did the twitter chat! (we shall not worry about me turning up a few hours late)

23rd – 103 pages.
I made it! It is the final day and I finally hit my target. I also took part in the challenge and entered the big giveaway. I can’t wait until the next bout in January. Watch this space and join us.
