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.

  1. I was late to the chat too! Oh well, it was still fun!

    Congrats on hitting your target!

    1. It was. I'm looking forward to getting there on time next bout. And thanks. It's been a weird week. But I'm reading again and picking up on the blog, so it's been a success.
