The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized
by Amanda Shofner and Kelly Rubidoux Apple.
It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, January 6th
and runs through Sunday, January 12th in whatever time zone you are in.
Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, Twitter chats, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional.

FINAL RECAP

As you can see below, I didn’t manage to read as much as I would have liked, even though this was less than my previous Bout of Books record.
So instead of an average of 82 pages/day, I reached 74.
BUT I’m happy, as I actually didn’t have much time this week, because it was our Nativity celebration at Church, and it ended up being quite exhausting.

And I’m happy I finished 3 books (5 already total) in 2020, and I have only 39 pages left in Sanshiro, so I’ll finish this one tonight.
So far, I have also reviewed ll the books I have read this year, which is unreal for me. I’ll try to make this last…

  1. Eagle Strike, by Anthony Horowitz = FINISHED
  2. Audiobook: The Book of Tea, by Kakuzo Okakura = FINISHED
  3. Audiobook: The Book of Genesis = FINISHED

📚📚📚

DAY 7 RECAP
Here is what I read on DAY 7:

  1. Sanshiro, by Natsume Soseki = 18  pages
  2. Audiobook: The Haunted Bookshop = 24 minutes = equivalent to 16 pages

Total for Day 7:  34 pages
TOTAL so far:   523/575

That’s great for the audio time I had ironing to do!

I did the Instagram challenge, featuring (some of) my shelves

📚📚📚

 

DAY 6 RECAP
Here is what I read on DAY 6:

  1. Sanshiro, by Natsume Soseki =  112 pages
  2. Audiobook: The Book of Genesis = 2H15, equivalent to 10 pages = FINISHED
  3. Audiobook: The Haunted Bookshop = 25 minutes, equivalent to 15 pages

Total for Day 6:  137 pages
TOTAL so far:   489/575

That’s great for the audio time I had ironing to do!

I did the Instagram challenge, about an anticipated release

📚📚📚

DAY 5 RECAP
Here is what I read on DAY 5:

  1. Sanshiro, by Natsume Soseki = 56 pages

Total for Day 5:  56 pages
TOTAL so far:  352/575

This is getting more pathetic than even anticipated. It was definitely not a good idea to do it with this super busy and exhausting week

I did the Instagram challenge.
And on Twitter, I posted the perfect book for the “The One With the Books in It” challenge.

📚📚📚

DAY 4 RECAP
Here is what I read on DAY 4:

  1. Audiobook: The Book of Genesis = 10 minutes, equivalent to 2!! pages

Total for Day 4:  2 pages!!
TOTAL so far:  296/575

Who knew this was going to be the most pathetic day!!! I went to a late Christmas party and so had no time at all to read in the evening. And another party tonight, unless snow comes and changes our plans.

I did the Instagram challenge (the other one didn’t inspire me):

AND I did manage to write a short review for Eagle Strike. It will be live on 1/12 in my Sunday Post.

DAY 2 RECAP
Here is what I read on DAY 2:

  1. Eagle Strike, by Anthony Horowitz = 80 pages

TOTAL so far:  165/575

I also did 2 challenges:

With Church (Nativity celebration) and an evening party, I didn’t have much time, and decided to use the little reading time I had with an easy one, which is YA adventure/mystery.

📚📚📚

The Book of TeaAnd I managed to write a short review for The Book of Tea (will be live on 1/12).
So not too bad withe little time I had today.

So glad I had to cook something for Church and wrap gifts for our Nativity celebration this Tuesday – that gave me time to listen to audiobooks!
