Bout of Books #6.0 Goals & Updates!

Bout of Books Read-a-Thon

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, January 7th and runs through Sunday, January 13th 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 6.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. -From the Bout of Books 6.0 team.

Time Devoted to Reading
I hope to read at least two hours every day – if not longer on most days!

My Goals

  • Try to read at least four books
  • Spend 30minutes commenting on blogs
  • Meet some new blogger friends and find blogs to follow!
  • Enjoy myself

Books to Read
This is just a selection to choose from, most likely I won’t read them all but I change my mind so much that it’s always good for me to have a choice!

Updates

Monday

Total number of books I’ve read: 1/2!
Books: Veiled Mist by Eleaner T. Beaty.
Thoughts: I didn’t read as much as I hoped today and I missed the chat too – which I think was the only one I woulda been able to make *lip trembles* but there we go! Yesterday was a bit of a shaky day all around. Hopefully tomorrow will be much better!

Tuesday
Number of books I’ve read today: About 65%
Total number of books I’ve read: 1 and 15% of one!
Books: Veiled Mist by Eleanor T. Beaty and The Starboard Sea by Amber Dermont
Thoughts: Glad to have read a bit more today! Still had a distracted day though so didn’t get that much done but I think I got enough. I really struggled to put the book down in the end! Looking forward to continuing to read this one.

Wednesday
Number of books I’ve read today: 35%
Total number of books I’ve read: 1 & 45%
Books: Veiled Mist by Eleanor T. Beaty and The Starboard Sea by Amber Dermont
Thoughts: Still really liking Starboard Sea! I got caught up with work and blog things so didn’t read as much as I wanted but now, while I try and stay up for the twitter chat, I plan to read more and hope to finish it today!

Books: Veiled Mist by Eleanor T. Beaty, The Starboard Sea by Amber Dermont, Let Me Be The One by Bella Andre, and Wonder by R. J. Palacio
Thoughts: Not as far ahead as I had hoped to be, but got totally hooked on both of my the new reads I started today!

Saturday
Number of books I’ve read today: 75%
Total number of books I’ve read: 3 and a quarter!
Books: Veiled Mist by Eleanor T. Beaty, The Starboard Sea by Amber Dermont, Let Me Be The One by Bella Andre, and Wonder by R. J. Palacio

Total number of books I’ve read: 3 and three quarters!
Books: Veiled Mist by Eleanor T. Beaty, The Starboard Sea by Amber Dermont, Let Me Be The One by Bella Andre, and Wonder by R. J. Palacio
Thoughts: I was drowning in the awesomeness that is Wonder but I had work in the morning so I eventually had to put the book down! Can’t wait to finish it though!


wrap-up

Overall, I didn’t manage many of my goals :-( I got busy with family things, friend things, work things, etc. But I was glad that I only had 25% before reaching my reading goal! But I missed all the chats, and visited very few blogs and I met no new bloggers! But, I did still enjoy it and can’t wait for the next one!
Hope you all liked my mini-challenge as well!
