Bout of books – Day 7 and Wrap up post

Its hard to believe that the week is all over already. It went by too quickly and I am really going to miss all of the fun. I already have the next bout (in May if I remember correctly) pencilled into my diary and I can’t wait. 
Yesterday was another slow reading day because it was hard to get settled with my child at home. She, quite rightly, takes my attention on a weekend. Reading happens after her bedtime if I have energy left over. 
Day 7 Stats:
Number of books so far: 2.25
Books finished this week: Illusions of Fate by Kiersten White, The Leveller by Julia Durango.

Number of pages read today: 71
Number of pages read so far : 575
Current book: Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

I really don’t think almost 600 pages in a week, and more than two books is bad for me. My targets for this week was to read two books and to socialise. I did both, a twitter chat AND some challenges!! I also think this bout really kick started this blog. I started it a week ago and from visiting other blogs I have been able to really think about what I should do here. I have pages of ideas and things I want to do and I am really excited about the future.

I also met some amazing bloggers and writers on Twitter and in comments. If you want to keep chatting please do. I am @that1stline on twitter and would love to hear from you!!

What achievement are you proudest of this week?


Bout of Books – Day 6 update.

No stats today because I didn’t read a single page yesterday. Not one solitary word.
I did take part in the Twitter Chat which was amazing fun but over way too quickly. I spent time commenting on blogs and being social and then I cuddled up with my OH to watch a movie. It was lovely but didn’t leave time for book . 
Today I plan to read a little and watch TV with the kiddo. Not the reading filled weekend I planned but I am OK with that. 

Bout of Books 12 – Day 5 Update

Friday was good!!! And yes, I overused the exclamation but I do have a reason. 
I had to put my reading of Fangirl on hold because I was lucky enough to be approved for an eArc of The Leveller by Julia Durango. 
It’s a book that is mostly set within a virtual world/video game and being a gamer I was pretty excited to give it a read. Therefore I let it jump my TBR pile and I’m glad I did. The book was AMAZING and I read it in one sitting. So I have now finished my two books target this week. Woohoo.

Bout of books – Day 4 Update

I knew today was going to be a slow day because Thursday is always pretty busy for me. I had shopping and other silly things to do, plus two assignments due for University so I didn’t get settled down to read until late evening. Then I fell asleep with the book. Still feeling good though and looking forward to the weekend!

Bout Of Books – Day 3 Update

I think I might just have broken the slump. Quicky post with just the numbers and stuff for tonight. I didn’t do any challenges so that I could focus on the reading. What I will say is that this challenge has been an eye-opener for me. I always considered myself a pretty quick and focussed reader. This has really tested me and I have learned that I am easily distracted, and don’t read as fast as I thought.

Overall, I feel pretty proud of myself for hitting the first milestone. One book down, one to go. You never know, I might make three afterall.
