And that’s a wrap on this round of Bout of Books! I really enjoyed myself during this readathon, and it was a great way to encourage myself to read more at the beginning of the year. My readathon wrapped up nicely; over the weekend I was able to get a lot of reading done in addition to other things like seeing Pitch Perfect 3 (basically the same as the first two movies, which meant it was exactly what I was in the mood for), fixing stuff around my apartment, and working out a bunch.
Here are my overall stats for the readathon:
Books finished: 4
Books started, but not finished: 2
Total number of pages read: 690 pages
Audiobook time: 8.6 hours (516 minutes)
Not bad, right? On Sunday I did feel like I got a bit overwhelmed from all the readathon-ing and had to slow things down a bit, especially considering that I still have another readathon to participate in this month–24 in 48 is happening during the last weekend in January. I honestly have no idea what I’m going to read for 24 in 48, but I do want to participate. I’m thinking that maybe instead of a bunch of little books, I’ll pick one or two chunky fantasies to try and make a dent in.
And, because I like keeping track of these things, here are my updates for days 6&7:
Books started: Beneath the Sugar Sky
Books finished: none
Pages read: 142 pages of Beneath the Sugar Sky
Audiobook time: 55 minutes of No is Not Enough
Books started: none
Books finished: Beneath the Sugar Sky
