30 Days of Readathon

The folks who host Dewey's 24-Hour Readathon are counting down to the 10th anniversary Readathon on October 21, 2017

 

 

More information is available at http://www.24hourreadathon.com/30-days-of-readathon/

 

I, unfortunately don't have time for the extended festivities, but am looking forward to the convergence of Halloween Bingo and Readathon

COYER Summer Reading List | August Readathon Wrap Up!
COYER is a reading challenge hosted by Michelle @ Because Reading, Berls @ Fantasy is more fun, and Stormi @ Books, Movies, Reviews Oh My!
COYER stands for "Clean out your e-reads."  And typically the goal is to read from all the freebies or low priced books you've collected in the past on your e-readers.

But for this summer duration of June 17th to September 8th, our hosts are throwing out the normal rules!

My COYER Summer Reading List summary page.

 


 

For those of us participating in the Summer Reading List part of this summer's COYER Challenge, our hosts have announced three different readathons for each month of the challenge:

 

  • Read-a-thon Dates are
    • June 25th – July 2nd ~ read only ebooks
    • July 23rd to July 30th ~ read only physical books
    • August 20th to August 27th ~ read only audio and ebooks

 


 


In a way, August's thon was better than the previous two... however, not really.  I'd say I break even considering that one book was less than 300 pages, and the rest were novellas that were barely 150 pages.  But whatever, I managed to knock four more books off of my digital shelves.  That's still accomplishment!

About two more weeks until the end of COYER, so I'm hoping to knock a few more books off my reading list.  I stopped adding five after finishing five books, and decided just to focus on what's on my list already.

Then there's Halloween Bingo, and my own Personal Series Challenge...

But truthfully, giving myself lists and a direction has been quite helpful in knocking out TBRs and deciding what to read next.  Sometimes you just need structure, but I'm going to make myself take things even more laid back as the year progresses, and when 2018 rolls around.

COYER Summer Reading List | August Readathon!

COYER stands for "Clean out your e-reads."  And typically the goal is to read from all the freebies or low priced books you've collected in the past on your e-readers.

My COYER Summer Reading List summary page.



For those of us participating in the Summer Reading List part of this summer's COYER Challenge, our hosts have announced three different readathons for each month of the challenge:

 

  • Read-a-thon Dates are
    • June 25th – July 2nd ~ read only ebooks
    • July 23rd to July 30th ~ read only physical books
    • August 20th to August 27th ~ read only audio and ebooks


And we're starting another COYER readathon!  As stated above, this will be audio and e-books only, and since I don't really have any obligations for this week, I will do my utmost best to dive into some of my e-books on this list.  I've been caught distracted the past few days and so am kind of stuck in a book I'm not all that interested in.  Chances are, I'll end up either dropping it, or putting it on hold.  Fortunately, it's not one of my COYER books; although, I DID go to the trouble of driving out to the library and picking it up...

 


I am currently reading Behind the Scenes, at a slow-going pace, but not because the book isn't good.  A lot of things have been going on lately.  I need to focus, but it's not entirely easy.

Meanwhile, I've randomly selected a few other books on my list to move onto once I finish Behind the Scenes.  All three are novellas, totaling less than two hundred pages each, so I'm hoping that I'll be able to breeze three all of them.

This should be the easier COYER thon to participate in, considering there are no crossover challenges I'm dealing with at the same time.  But somehow, I'm having doubts about my reading habits these past few days.

We'll see how it all goes.

July 2017 Wrap Up
The Soldier's Dark Secret (Comrades in Arms) - Marguerite Kaye
The Doctor's Undoing (Love Inspired Historical) - Allie Pleiter
Persepolis I & II - Marjane Satrapi
A Walk in the Woods - Bill Bryson
Licensed for Trouble - Susan May Warren

Two things helped push the number of books I read this month higher than usual: 24in48 Read-a-thon and binge reading series via COYER. Since the start of COYER, I have managed to read through 4 series (1 was a duet, the others were longer). I will not be adding any more books to the list in August because I want to finish off the list. I am finding myself to be a definite mood reader (see binge reading a series) rather than a list follower.

 

Reading for the Pop Sugar challenge went better this month than last month's lonely 1 book. Again, thanks to that read-a-thon! I completed one challenge already - Library Love Challenge (hosted by Angel) "OverDrive Junkie" level (36+ books). I also earned all four badges within my library's summer reading program (adult level goal is to read 990 minutes; I am at 1200 and some change). My son earned all three badges and my daughter earned two at the kids level (goal of 660 minutes).

 

 DNFs: 2. The Rake's Redemption by Regina Scott was supposed to be read for RB Bingo but I couldn't stand either the hero or heroine - I don't think I made it to 25%. Whispered Promises by Nora Roberts was a 2-in-1 anthology of two 1980s category romance she wrote for Silhouette....1980s category romances DO. NOT. AGE. WELL. Just the sheer amount of smoking by both hero and heroine was enough to give me the dry heaves. I read a chapter from each story and then tossed it on the donation pile. And the descriptions of the clothes/hair/makeup/facial hair....NOPE.

 

Challenges

BL/GR: 117/150

Pop Sugar: 3; 40/52 prompts completed

COYER: 26/45 books

I was pretty scattered with my book choices this readathon.  I could have stuck to physical books only, but I had some library books to finish, and just as well, I wanted to focus on the end of Booklikes-opoly.  So hopefully for the next readathon, I'll have a better time of focus--there won't be other challenges to focus on... maybe.

Meanwhile, two books read isn't bad, I think, even if I felt like I could have read, at least, one more.  I was truly hoping to read all five of the Steele Street books I had left to finish, but two is not bad.
