Bout of Books 7.0: Day 1!!!

Bout of Books

My Registration Post will take you to my initial sign up post. 

I CANNOT believe it is upon us. The it being Bout of Books 7.0!! I am so excited to be participating in this again. I hope to be productive but I will have to make this read-a-thon fit in with a busy schedule this week. I will do my best and that will be that. :)

I got up to read this morning to read and now here I am writing my update post. This post will be updated as I can today. 

My Goals for the Week:
  • Finish 3 books and hoping for more
  • Write reviews for titles finished within 2 days
  • Visit at least 10 different bloggers each day



Number of books I've read today: 1 full, 1/2 of another plus a full CD (about 4 chapters or so) of listening
Total number of books I've read: 1 1/2

  • Nantucket Blue by Leila Howland--finished!
  • Listened to 1 full CD (just over an hour total time) of The Paradise Guest House by Ellen Sussman--this is for a review for publication so I will not be posting a review of it here for quite some time.
  • Working on Smart Girls Get What They Want by Sarah Strohmeyer as I just had an inkling to read it again.
How has your first day gone?
