Bout of Books 10 – Friday

Bout of Books

Bout of Books is almost over, and now is when my reading levels will definitely decrease while most everyone else’s is increasing!  I’ve got some traveling to do today, and then a wedding to go to.  Then traveling back home tomorrow.  At least I’ll get more time with my audiobook, it’s getting SO GOOD now and I didn’t want to get out of my car yesterday, haha.  I am 174 pages shy of my 3 books (based on # of pages) goal, so I’m going to aim to get those in today and tomorrow.  I’m also nearing halfway through Doctor Sleep, so I’d love to get past pg 264 before this read-a-thon officially ends!


My Bout of Books Goals

Friday’s progress:

  • Total pages read since beginning of Bout of Books = 576
  • Physical Books completed = 1
  • Books completed based on # of pages read (see Starting Point post) = 2

  • Paterno by Joe Posnanski: pg 62

    Doctor Sleep starts out a little slow, I thought, but the farther I got into it, the harder it was to stop. Hopefully you’re able to power through some of that one!


I'd love to know what you think!
