The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, August 18th and runs through Sunday, August 24th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure, and the only reading competition is between you and your usual number of books read in a week. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 11 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team
Hello, Life? Excuse me… Yeah! Yeah, you! You’re messing up my reading game, dude! Go away!
Number of books I’ve read today: Zero if we’re talking about finished books only. 1 if we’re talking about reading IN a book, but not finishing it.
Total number of books I’ve read: I’m assuming only finished books, which would be 1.
Books: “Landing” by Emma Donoghue
Pages read today: I’ve read 56 pages of “Wicked” by Gregory Maguire.
Total number of pages read: 56 physical pages plus 58% on my Kindle.
Also I decided to participate in the challenge today, so here it goes:
If you liked: “Ash” by Malinda Lo
Then you will like: “The Dark Wife” by Sarah Diemer
… because both are witty and amazingly written retellings of popular stories with wonderful Lesbian protagonists.
Jolly good reading times to you all!
