Bout of Books Day 5!

Bout of Books

What a day--after working and staying up late all this week, I am starting to feel the lack of sleep. I still have to work tomorrow, too. I still hope to get some reading done tomorrow. I had a few hours this afternoon to read before we went to my the fun fair at my daughter's school. I am done reading for the night (I think) so I can work on reviews. 

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

Today's Progress:
  • I read the bulk of Altered today to finish it. I listened to it as an audiobook over a few days but went back through to read it too. I guess that's a little nutty but I just needed to read it! :) LOL It is SO GOOD! Have you read it yet?

Reviews and Other Special Posts this Week:


Cumulative Progress:

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.
Number of books I've read today: 1/2 of one book plus two CDs of an audiobook
Total number of books I've read: 3 books!

Number of books I've read today: about 50 pages of one and 20 of another
Total number of books I've read: 3 books! plus 70 pages
I also go to participate in the Twitter Chat! I am so happy that I was able to do this--I did not think it would work out this week to do one. :)

Number of books I've read today: finished 2 
Total number of books I've read: 5 books! 
Number of books I've read today: finished 1!

  1. You're doing amazing! I've been really wanting to read Altered, I've had it on hold at the library, but had to freeze the hold because I had way to many books checked out already. I definitely plan on getting a lot of reading done this weekend! Good luck with the rest of the read-a-thon! :)

    1. It is so good! Do make time for it! Thanks for stopping by today. Good luck the rest of the week to you too. Happy reading!

  2. You're doing great! Wish I could read that fast.

    I hope/plan to read more cause of the weekend but I'm not sure I'll have any more spare time. Though it would be nice to finish The 5th Wave and start with Sever.

    1. I have 5th Wave on my list too. :)I have to read the whole Chemical Garden series yet. One of these days I will. Happy Reading!

  3. Wow, it seems you're having a great read-a-thon, awesome :)

    1. Thanks Aleksandra! I hope you are as well. Happy Reading!


Thank you for taking the time to write a comment! I read them all and respond to them as soon as I can.
