I’m really disappointed that we will no longer have daily challenges, though sounds like there will still be some on Instagram.
These daily challenges were a great way to connect with other bloggers.
The reading-in-place times don’t work well for me, I’m working. So I’ll be able to do it only once a day, at 9:30 pm. So we’ll see how this goes for me.
I’m setting my goal at 525 pages, that is, 75 pages per day.
Here are the books I plan to read from. Some I’m currently reading.
- Killer, Come Back to Me: The Crime Stories of Ray Bradbury
- Le livre de Perle, by Timothée de Fombelle
- Vesper Flights, by Helen Macdonald
- Psalm 118: Commentary by Theophan the Recluse
- Audiobook: The Big Four, by Agatha Christie
- Audiobook: Pandemia, by Franck Thilliez
For Bout of Books 29, no daily challenges will be hosted on our blog. Instead, we’ll have reading-in-place times!
Reading-in-place times, or reading sprints, happen daily on Twitter. If you don’t have Twitter, make note of these times and report your reading progress on your platform of choice.
All reading-in-place times last 30 minutes.
