My goals for the week include:

  1. Have fun!
  2. Visit others participating in the read-a-thon
  3. Finish as many books as I can--it may only be two, but I will hope for more
  4. Participate in a Twitter Chat if the times work with my schedule
  5. Participate in a Daily Challenge or two

Busy day--we went to watch Into the Woods, ran errands and worked around the house. I managed to carve out some reading time in the evening (and completely forgot to put on the Golden Globes).

I wish I had been able to get more read than I did, but overall this last week I managed to finish 770 pages, 2 magazines, start an audiobook and finished four books (well three and half really).

I hope everyone had a GREAT Bout of Books and I look forward to the next one in May!!

  1. I hope you are having a wonderful Bout of Books! I started book four today. :)

    I like reading Nora Roberts here and there. I don't think I have read these ones, but it is hard to keep track.
