A Bump in Bout of Books Progress: Day 2 Update

Bout of Books Read-a-Thon


I feel a bit behind in my Bout of Books read-a-thon, but that’s only because I got rear ended yesterday and fell asleep at 9pm-highly unusual for me. I did finish reading  Seating Arrangements by Maggie Shipstead. A chain of events occurred right after I wrote yesterday’s update that made me more interested in the story. I’m still lukewarm about it.

During my son’s nap time I was able to visit and leave 2 comments on other Bout of Books bloggers. I’m keeping a tally in my planner. I will try to make up the difference today.

I’m also really excited about my Twitter chat today with Alma Katsu, author of The Taker and The Reckoning! I hope you can join me this evening at 9PM Eastern. For more details and to see what prizes you might win, check out the chat info.

Today I’m starting a new book, An Echo Through the Snow by Andrea Thalasinos, but I’m not tied to it. If I can’t get into, I think I’ll pick up one of the others. I have two library books on hold that I’m waiting until the weekend to read because I know I won’t be able to put it down.
