Bout of Books 25: Wrap Up!
The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda Shofner and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, May 13th and runs through Sunday, May 19th in whatever time zone you are in.  Bout of Books is low-pressure.   There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional.

I'm going to have this post double as an 'It's Monday!' meme, if only because I don't think I've done one in a while.

Bout of Books this time around, I feel has been a resounding success for me, and mainly I'm just super happy that reached all the goals I set out to reach.

1) Read 3 books.  Check!
2) Update daily.  Check!
Bonus Goal:  Read for 2 to 5 hours daily...  Okay, so I didn't exactly reach this goal, but I spent six hours reading this last day of the BoB readathon, so if I average the time I spent reading, it all evens out.

Best of all, I actually finished 5 books!  Two more books than I set out to read.  Yay!  True, at least two of the books were already half finished at the beginning of the readathon, but still--Yay!

In the meantime, I've also been able to catch up on some reviewing and some reading game update posts.  All-in-all, I feel like I've had a fabulous reading and blogging week!  With a new reading game starting up on the BookLikes platform, BookLikes-opoly, I'm pumped to keep up my reading pace!

Cheers, all!

What's Hopefully Up Next

 


With the starting of BL-opoly, I don't quite have a tentative reading list for the coming weeks, probably even months, as my each next roll for the game will dictate what book I will be reading.  The only books I know for sure about are the above two:  Hard Target, because it will be my first book for BL-opoly, and Tightrope, because I still have one more Amanda Quick book to read before the end of the month.

Otherwise, let the BL-opoly dice roll gods decide for me!

Of course, while I had fully intended to finish reading another book on Saturday, that didn't quite happen.  With a whole day off of work, I'd planned on kicking back, eating some snacks, and reading, reading, reading.

Instead, I spent most of my time going through books to compile some possible reads for BookLikes-opoly when the game starts.  I like making lists, it's all the rage.

Nonetheless, I'm still making progress on Mortal Arts, and I'm very much hoping that I'll have it finished before the weekend is over.  I'm also going to find a chance to finish listening to the rest of The Sittaford Mystery.  Then I'll be down to only one ongoing book, which I plan on taking slowly anyway.  It'll be something that maybe I can read if I'm ever between books during BL-opoly.

Well, it looks like I've met all of my proposed goals... except for that bonus goal of reading 2 to 5 hours daily.  I haven't been keeping track well enough to know if I've met that goal.  But I've finished reading 3 books (which is also me taking liberties with the way I've worded the goal to read 3 books, since technically, I read one book and finished two books that were already in progress... so if I wanted to split hairs, I really only read the equivalent of two books... but who's really couting?)

I've managed to post an update everyday, even if I made little progress in reading.

And with the weekend coming up, I've got two things in mind:  1) Do some serious reading to put a serious dent in the books I'm currently reading, and 2) some Booklikes-opoly planning!!

Really, I don't think I'm going to spend too much time planning for the new game, but I DO truly want to finish as many of my current reads as possible so that I can start fresh for the new game's new start date.  Obviously that's probably NOT going to happen, but we can hope, right?

Meanwhile, as far as progress for the day goes, I managed to read a little from Mortal Arts, and continue to make great progress listening to The Sittaford Mystery.  Then, I kind of just breezed through The Bone Woman and finished reading it a little before midnight.

Now I can move onto the next book!

Thursday was not as successful a day in reading as I would have liked, but mostly because work was a bit grueling, and so I kind of passed out while reading The Bone Woman last night after I got off work.  That's fine, I still made a slight bit of progress, even if not much.  At the very least, I've still been listening to The Sittaford Mystery each day as I drive to and from work, and I'm guesstimating that I'll have the audio book finished in another two days.  Since I'm off over the weekend, I'm planning on setting aside some time, specifically to finish listening to the rest of the book.

And also since I'm off over the weekend, that means readathan might be able to kick into full gear for me... assuming I don't end up needing to socialize with real people.  =P

I had been hoping to get more reading done after I got off work last night, but instead, I found myself trying to catch up with some blog posts that were long overdue.  I managed to post a couple things, and finish writing another review, soon to be posted.  Then I started formatting other future posts, and briefly considered doing some blog housekeeping by updating some of my Reading Challenge pages... but decided to just leave them be for now.

Still, I've made some great progress, having finished another book (Seduction), and starting another book (Mortal Arts).  To be honest, I kind of DO want to spend some more time on the books that I have already been reading, so unless I suddenly end up being drawn completely into Mortal Arts, I may try to make some more headway into The Bone Woman.
