So… here we are! Another Bout of Books over and done with, and I have to say, although I didn’t do heaps of reading, I did enjoy the experience. I hosted my first ever challenge and a giveaway – which if I may say so myself, went swimmingly.
These are my final reading stats:
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte – 7 hours
Lock Down by Sean Black – 460p
The Sniper and the Wolf by Scott McEwen – 400p
The Secret Agent by Joseph Conrad – 35p
Gone with the Wind – 320p
Total pages = 1215
I think this is about on par with previous Bout of Books that I have completed – a little disappointing considering I read much quicker these days. However – A whole morning/afternoon was spent commenting on many journals and running the challenge, so I feel like my participation this time has been better.
I really need to thank the ladies that run Bout of Books, they have been so helpful, I on many occasions had to email them to ask things, and their responses were amazing. They put so much time and effort into this event, and I have enjoyed participating.
So, I’m really excited to be participating in this Bout of Books – I’m going to be able to set a couple of hours aside each day to read, and I can’t wait!
My goals are pretty loose this readathon – and that is to be active on twitter, to update my blog daily and to read at least two books. I will also read the first 10 chapters of Gone With The Wind. I want to participate in a challenge or two, but if I don’t feel like participating then I won’t.
My TBR includes:
Red Line by Brian Thiem
Savage Tide by Greg Barron
Australia and Canada in Afghanistan by Jack Cunningham and William Maley
The Godfather by Mario Puzo
Any book that takes my fancy from my TBR bookcase.
I’m looking forward to chatting with everyone this readathon, if you are a twitterer, please add me @bookybecksa or let me know your handle so we can cheer each other on!
Well… after a little bit of deliberation I have decided to devote bout of books to reading fun books, and nothing for uni. See you next week, Gone With The Wind. So, my goals are to finish four books – I can comfortably finish two a week, so four is pushing the boundaries a bit.
I plan on reading every day, and TV is going to be banned for the week.
