Bout of Books 10.0: Day 2 (Tuesday, May 13)

Reading Completed:

Today, I read a total of 210 pages.  I barely reached my goal of 200 pages.  Here is what I read:
  • Finished Unusual Awakening by S.M. Knowles (last 60%; 107 pages)
  • Started Awakening Dream by S.M. Knowled (44%; 103 pages)
I plan on finishing Awakening Dream tomorrow so that I can have a review out by Thursday for a blog tour.  I am enjoying this second book in the series much more than I enjoyed Unusual Awakening.

I also plan on reading and possibly finishing Thrive by Mark Hall.  I am currently 76% finished with this book.  I am not sure which book I will tackle after that to get my finishing pages for my 200 page goal.

Other Bout of Book News:

Today I did two Bout of Books challenges: Bookish Battle Royal and Most Anticipated Books.

I also participated in several reading sprints that were hosted by participates of Bout of Books, @bookishlou, @AliciaJespersen, and @HelenTheBookowl.  I also hosted a few sprints myself and plan on hosting a few tomorrow as well.

My favorite part about this read-a-thon so far is not meeting my goals, but rather meeting and sociallizing with new people.  I have met so many people through the sprints, challenges, and twitter chats.  I have also found new book review blogs that I am interested in keeping up with.  I cannot wait to see what tomorrow holds with this read-a-thon!

So Today I: 

  • Continued and Finished 1 book
  • Began 1 book
  • Participated in 2 challenges
  • Participated in several informal and unofficial reading sprints

  1. I think the most anticipated books challenge is going to be the death of me! So many books to add to my TBR! But who doesn't love more recs :) I love getting to meet new readers as well, this whole week is a lot of fun.
