Bout of Books 5.0 Wrap Up

Bout of Books Read-a-Thon

As the weekend closes, I’ll share my last update and wrap up for Bout of Books 5.0 read-a-thon. Since Fridays and Saturdays are our family days, I spend as much time reading as I wanted to. Sort of. I enjoyed our family time together. I also got some time to myself and went shopping, though not for books.

Though I didn’t finish reading  An Echo Through the Snow, I got to hang out with my friend Sandie of Teen Lit Rocks. We talked books like we always do, and I feared I might have ruined  Seating Arrangements by Maggie Shipstead for her.

My goal for Bout of Books was to finish 2 books (my kids’ books don’t count) and meet new to me book bloggers by commenting on their blogs and joining a twitter chat. I didn’t finish 2 books but I did meet a lot of fun people on Twitter and through their blogs. Hi everyone!

Final tally:

Total books read: 1 and 1/2 just for me books, at least 2 kids chapter books
Total pages read:  558
Blogs I left comments on: 21 plus whatever I get to before midnight
Challenges participated: 4

I just got a huge stack of books in to vet as selections for our book club members, so I better get cracking!

How did you do in Bout of Books or what did you read this weekend?

  1. Glad you had a good week. I didn’t meet my goals either, but I had fun so I still call Bout-of-Books 5.0 a success 😉
