BOB10

Bout of books 10 summary!

Well I certainly enjoyed this read-a-thon, and was very happy with my participation. I read 1405 pages, which for me, in a week, is pretty much unheard of. I managed to finish 4 novels and 1 short story, my goal for the challenge was to complete 4 novels, so I accomplished that!

The challenges were excellent and I certainly will be putting the next bout of books in my calendar! Thanks to everyone who commented on my blog or simply participated – you guys rock, and make the challenge worth doing.

The following is my list of books I wanted to read from, and I read 5 of the 8. I only chose books from this list until my last option, which for me was something different – I usually am a mood reader.

Proximity – Stephen Phillips
Free Bird – Kevin Cooley
The Watchman – Chris Ryan
Beat – Stephen Jay Schwartz
Personal Protection – Stephen Leather
Last Night – Stephen Leather
The Giver – Lois Lowry
Stone Cold – C.J. Box

So the following is my update for day #7

Bout of Books progress report day 4

Well, I certainly didn’t get as much reading done yesterday as I was planning – just a measly 2 hours, and it was very distracted time too, as my boyfriend kept coming in the room and talking to me. Plus, I then went and saw my sister for lunch and stayed there all night, but that is the nature of it! I’m not planning on reading much tomorrow either – I have lunch & dinner plans, but hopefully I can squeeze in a couple of hours.

I participated in the spell it out challenge by Kimberlyfayereads

Tomorrow I am planning on finishing or at least getting further through Last Night. I am really enjoying it so far, it’s about a serial killer who targets goths!

BOB Spell it out Challenge

This looks like a fun challenge to participate in, so I decided to use my first name – Rebecca, and then realised in the past four years I haven’t read a single book starting with the letter E – let alone two of them! So I decided to go with my birth month – August (you know, cause Leo was also out).

A – Aggressor by Andy McNab

U – Undersea Prison by Duncan Falconer

G – Good Jihadist, The by Bob Shepherd

U – Ultimate Weapon by Chris Ryan

S – Strike Back by Chris Ryan

T – Traitor by Duncan Falconer

Okay, so I decided to use books only by ex-SAS and ex-SBS authors! SUE ME.
