Bout of Books 10

Bout of Books

It’s the 10th one already! I’ve been participating in these read-a-thons since the first one, and they’re always so much fun. If you want to read with everyone else as well, go to the sign-up page. Whether you can read a lot of only a little, it doesn’t matter. Meeting new people and reading even a page count, so come and participate! Here’s the blurb from the blog itself:

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, May 12th and runs through Sunday, May 18th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure, and the only reading competition is between you and your usual number of books read in a week. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 10 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team

Wrap-Up

Books read: 2
Chats attended: 0
Pages read: 624

I started out by finishing a few pages of the book I had started before bout of books, then I completely read Cress. I also wasn’t in the mood for anything after reading Cress, in fact I’m still trying to decide what to read.

My goals this time around mostly weren’t achieved, but it was a busy week and I’m not disappointed.
