Bout of Books Updates: Days 4&5

It’s the end of Day 5 of Bout of Books, and I’m making some progress!

On Day 4, I had to work, but after work I went to a book sale at my library. I’m a former library book sale addict, but have actually been doing pretty well lately at not going overboard with my library book sale hauls, so I was sort of due for a splurge. I ended up finding 8 books for $10, and I consider that a success because all of the books I picked up were already on my TBR list, so I wasn’t just picking up random books that I’ll never read. When I got home I dove into The Female of the Species and was able to finish it; I also made dinner while listening to the audiobook of We Are Okay.

On Day 5, Friday, I again worked during the day, and we were hit with horrible weather–basically it rained all day, then got way colder which made the rain freeze into ice, and then it snowed on top of that. Since I really didn’t want to be driving in all of that more than necessary, I had a chill night in and finished We Are Okay on audio. After reading a bit of An Unkindness of Ghosts, which I hadn’t yet picked up during this readathon, I was in the mood to start a new audiobook, and decided to go with No Is Not Enough: Resisting Trump’s Shock Politics and Winning the World We Need by Naomi Klein, because Trump continues to be terrible in every way and I’d like to learn how to get more involved in resisting.

Here are my stats:
