Bout of Books Day 3-Update

Today

Progress: Read 112 pages of Voyager by Diana Gabaldon

Challenge: Book Haiku hosted by Kristina Horner

Total

Pages Read: 484

Books Completed-None (yet!)

I’m still enjoying Voyager but I’m definitely feeling the length of it, what with keeping track of my reading so closely this week. I am hoping to finish this one up by/on Friday and use Saturday to read something short and light off my TBR (maybe Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover? Not sure yet) before jumping in to All The Light We Cannot See, which I want to have read by next Wednesday for IRL book club.

Today’s challenge was so. fun. I got to write a little haiku about Voyager:

And these are tons of fun to read! You can really tell who is loving their current read and who isn’t.

Bout of Books Day 2-Update

Today

Progress: Read 209 pages of Voyager by Diana Gabaldon

Pages Read: 348

Books Completed-None (yet!)

Voyager is still going well, overall. It had a bit of a slow transition section that I was slogging through a little last night and early today, but now it’s roared back and is crazier than ever, which is saying quite a lot, given everything else happening in these books.

Bout of Books 11: Weekend Warrior

I came into Bout of Books 11 with a five book TBR and the best of intentions, but then the week became extremely stressful, with busy days at work that I missed much of because of car trouble that turned into a laughably complicated fiasco. When I got home every night, I just wanted to dive back into all my favorite parts of all my favorite books, not tackle the pile I’d laid out for myself. But on Saturday Continue reading

Bout of Books Read-A-Thon

I had decided not to do this, because there are many other things I should be doing this week, but what the heck. I don’t even have to go to work that much this week, so there’s time and it’s low pressure anyway. Here’s the official blurb, if you need to know more:

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 9.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team

I just now decided to go for it, only five hours out from the start, so it’s not like these goals are super well thought out, but here’s my plan:

Finish The Eye of the World by Robert Jordan: I started this just today, and it’s a monster so if I can get done with just this by the end of the week, I’ll still be pretty happy, but let’s throw in some stretch goals, shall we?

Stretch goal: Finish City of Dark Magic by Magnus Flyte and The Titan’s Curse by Rick Riordan: Haven’t started these yet.

Super stretch goal: Read (at least start) And The Mountains Echoed by Kahled Hosseini.

So finishing all four of these books would mean reading about 250 pages per day, which is actually somewhat doable, but we’ll see what happens. I’ll try my best to post an update or two throughout the week (on days I don’t already have a post planned). If you’re participating, let me know in the comments. I may need a friend or two!
