Bout of Books - Wrap-Up

Bout of Books is over! My goals were not very concrete, but I think it's safe to say that I didn't reach them. I ended up being rather busy, so my extra reading efforts just made me read as much as I normally would. And as for my Goodreads challenge, I'm still 4 books behind, the same as at the start of the read-a-thon. So, at least I didn't fall any further behind!

Here's what I read over the last week:
  • I read a bit more of Talisman of El, and then abandoned it.
  • I continued reading The Complete Works of Lewis Carroll.
  • I continued listening to Memnoch the Devil.
  • I read The Enchanted Truth.
  • I read most of Quarantine.
Altogether, I read 494 pages, and listened to 3 hours and 45 minutes of the audiobook. So, still a good chunk of reading!

I'll probably do the next Bout of Books, if I'm free. There will be a poll up soon on the Bout of Books blog to decide when it will be.

So, I don't know when that one will be, but I think I'm read-a-thon free until October, when I'll be doing the FrightFall Read-a-Thon in the first week, and of course Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-Thon later on in the month. (While I'm not really that good at week-long read-a-thons, I go ALL OUT on the 24 hour ones. You gotta be there.)


  1. You did great! That's a lot of reading with a full schedule to work around. Hope to see you during Bout-of-Books 6.0 in January!

    1. Thanks! Yeah, I work full time, and have more hobbies than the actual person, so it's definitely hard to fit in as much reading as the retired/on summer vacation/self-employed people can do! But I'm pretty happy with my final numbers. :)

      Thanks for stopping by!
