Bout of Books 8.0 Wrap-up

Bout of BooksBout of Books 8.0 has come to a close and I'm kinda sad about that! This is the first time I've done a bout of books read-a-thon and, though I didn't reach my goal, I still had a lot of fun and can hardly wait for another chance to participate!

I dedicated the entire week to reading, reading, and more reading. My goal was to finish at least 5 books, read 150 pages a day or at least 3 hours a day(whichever came first), and to keep everyone updated on my progress on Twitter! Well, I ended up finishing 4 books, a total of 1427 pages, and a bunch of hours that I didn't keep track of... I was so close to reaching my goal of 5 books! Anyway, here are my updates from this past week..

  1. Congrats on four books! If it makes you feel any better, I had a goal of finishing five books, but I only finished two.

    1. Thank you, Grace! Even though I didn't reach my goal I still had a lot of fun :D I was pushed to finally read some of the books that have been sitting on my shelf and I got to meet fellow book lovers, like you! It turned out to be awesome!

      And good job on finishing those two books! The fact that we got some reading done is all that counts :)

    2. Very true. Not many books, but they were both enjoyable. :-)
