Bout of Books 5.0: Day 1 Recap


Well, my first day of participating in Bout of Books went pretty well. I had hoped to get a little more reading time in, but did manage to get in quite a bit of listening in! For more information about Bout of Books, click here. My goals for the read-a-thon can be seen here.

Books Read:
  • The Color of Tea by Hannah Tunnicliffe: I had 18 pages left in this and finished it first thing yesterday morning.
  • Big Sky Mountain by Linda Lael Miller: I started this and read 120 pages so far.
 Audio Progress:
  • I've Got Your Number by Sophie Kinsella: 50 minutes
  • The Hundred Flowers by Gail Tsukiyama:  1 hour

Challenges:
  • From Reading in Texas: What do you do with books when you finish them?  I do a few things. I pass some on to friends/family. With others, I use for my monthly giveaways (need to get August's monthly giveaway up soon before the month is over!). Then there are some that I keep for my personal collection: most historical fiction books, all the James Patterson books I buy, and of course, I keep all signed books.

Total Pages Read: 138
Total Time Reading: 2 hours 48 min
Total Time Listened: 1 hour 50 min
Overall Time: 4 hours 38 min

Plan for Day 2: I hope to finish Big Sky Mountain and start another book - not sure which yet...will depend on my mood! I also hope to get around and visit some blogs that are participating and possibly do a challenge or two.
