Bout of Books 11.0 | Wrap-Up!


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, August 18th and runs through Sunday, August 24th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure, and the only reading competition is between you and your usual number of books read in a week. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 11 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog.

Goals

1. Start and finish a series.
2. Participate in at least 3 challenges. Here is the schedule throughout the read-a-thon. 
3. Participate in a Twitter chat.
4. Daily updates here on my blog.
5. Reduce my TBR pile, meaning read at least 3 books. So, I need to read, read, read. 

Time I am Devoting to Reading: 3 hours a day at least. I do have school during the weekdays of the read-a-thon, and I have a lot of hard courses. So, I definitely need to up my game. 

Books I Read

Currently Reading: Eona by Alison Goodman

Books Read:
- Beyond the Grave by Judy Blundell
- Eon by Alison Goodman

Number of Pages Read Since Last Update: 113

So, that's a wrap! Read only two books, but that's alright. That is actually more than the books I've read since school started three weeks ago. I really, really enjoyed Eon and just didn't have time and energy to read Eona yesterday because of school and other stuff. How did y'all do?

Here's my Reading and Goals Update & Challenges.

Challenges I Did:
- Book Scavenger Hunt (Day 1)
- Like This, Try This (Day 4)
- Spell It Out (Day 6)
