Miss Reader

Every book is a new journey to embark on. I mainly read romances, but I dabble in other genres too.

Bout of Books read-a-thon

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 19th and runs through Sunday, August 25th 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 8.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team

I've been seeing this a lot so I'm giving it a try. I'll be using this post for my daily updates. My main purpose is to read more books than I usually do in a week. I usually read 2-3 books so for this challenge I'm shooting for 4. I don't know if I'll be participating in the other stuff.

WRAP UP

So I only finished two out of the four books I set out to read. Oh well! I got a huge chunk of reading done, and I had fun. That's what matters.

 

Bazil Broketail is pretty long, but I'm halfway through and I should be able to finish it by the end of this week.

 

I posted my review of The Cat Who Went into the Closet a few days ago. I'll post my review of Rule of Three sometime later today.

 

This challenge was fun. I'll be sure to participate in the next Bout of Books! :D
