I've been gone a while. I started reading fanfiction to escape and I got sucked in an abyss.

I have no idea if someone else is hosting similar challenges. I just grabbed some of what I have hosted before.

Here's to a happy year of great reading
Jan2023: Not much has changed. Writing a fanfiction now O_o as well as reading but I bought 7 new books in December and hope to get those read soon. Crossing fingers about adding challenges (late!)

Bout of Books 7.0 Wrap-Up

Bout of Books

Official Blurb
(Please make sure you’re linking back to the Bout of Books website and attributing properly.)

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, January 7th and runs through Sunday, January 13th 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 6.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. -From the Bout of Books 6.0 team

My goals may have bit the dust but I still want to know how I did. . .

  • I plan on reading each day, just like I usually do. No, I did not read on Monday, all day at Disneyland wiped me out.
  • Read 1,000 pages, or at least 4 books. Finished four books and started one more. Total Pages read? more than 743.
  • do Twitter updates. Yes. One.
  • Check out the challenges (doesn't look like I'll be able to actually do any of them). no
  • Daily comments on other blogs. Sigh, didn't get this done at all!

Don't beat yourself up too bad about the goals. It is all a part of the journey, right? Did you enjoy Disney? I have never been to the California park.

Haha, you might not have met all your goals, but you went to DISNEYLAND! :-D I think that officially makes it an awesome week. Hope you had fun, both at the park and with the read-a-thon, and congrats with all the books you read! :-)
