Bout of Books 13 Update Post (Complete Thread)

Bout of Books

This week is Bout of Books 13. Bout of Books is a week long, low pressure readathon.  Here is the official blurb about the readathon:
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, May 11th and runs through Sunday, May 17th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 13 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team

  1. Oh I love The Invention of Hugo Cabret! Such a gorgeous book,and have you seen the movie? Stunning! Glad you're having a good week so far!

    1. I didn't know there was a movie. I will have to watch it! Hope you are having fun reading for Bout of Books. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. I know what you mean about not being able to read on a particular day. I read only 47 pages yesterday (against a typical 100+ pages per day) because I was just too busy to sit down with a book. You sure read up a storm on day 2 and day 3 though! Have fun with Bout of Books.

  3. Looks like you've had a great read-a-thon so far, even if you couldn't start right away. Enjoy the rest of your week!
