BOUT OF BOOKS here I come

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 18th and runs through Sunday, August 24th 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 11 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team


book-a-thon 2014

Wench: 290 Pages

The Postmistress: 350 Pages

The Christmas Wedding: 261

Where We Belong: 372

Total: 1,273 Pages

That is 181 pages a day, maybe I can do it, but that is not my goal. I have all of then on audio as well, so I hope to listen to them in the car and when I'm out running. With a baby around I will need all the audio books I can get. I will have to prepare some meals in a crackpot, or just have my boyfriend cook. I don't think he'll mind. I have cleaned the house top to bottom this weekend, so that there isn't much cleaning needed over the week. And off I go. This might be tough. I used to read a book a day, than I got a full time job and a baby, now I read a book a month. So this, I'm hoping will speed things up. And the books I chose are kind small. I just need to get some off my TBR shelf. So, I actually own all these books in print, but I got them on audio from the library, so I will not report these in time spent listening and time spent reading. I will just find the page in the actual book and say that I read so and so many pages. Because once I'm not in the car I will actually read the real book.

• Read at least a 100 pages a day. 150 would be ideal.

• Finish at least 3 of the books.

• Update my progress daily

• Of course have fun (reading always is)


Monday Number of pages read: 258 Books: Where We Belong
I listened to a lot of it, but I also got into the hot tub and actually read after the baby was asleep. Yey I'm past my goal. I think I can do this. I think I will finish on Tuesday and start another one.
Tuesday Number of pages read: 144 Books: Where We Belong and Postmistress
I finished up Where we Belong and loved loved it. Review coming soon. I started Postmistress and am a little confused. So many characters.

It was a little difficult to understand at first. Too many characters. But now it's pretty good. Not great yet.
