Bout of Books Update: Day 1

Bout of Books Read-a-Thon


My first day participating in Bout of Books went pretty well. Except for the fact that I cannot get invested in my book. I’m halfway through Seating Arrangements by Maggie Shipstead and have not found one character that I like. Usually I would just abandon the book, but I feel compelled to finish it. It’s just starting to get interesting. Sort of. I’ll share my review once I’m finished with it.

Seating Arrangements by Maggie Shipstead

I didn’t put it on my list, but I also read the entire India: The Moonstone Fairy to my daughter. So that counts right?

As for my other goals, I right on target. I didn’t plan on it, but I participated in the Bout of Books Twitter chat. It was a great way to meet some of those participating in the read-a-thon. It also helped me find blogs to comment on. I didn’t keep track but I think I commented on more than 5 blogs, which is my daily goal.

So Hi! to my new friends and fellow Bout of Books participants!

Please join me tomorrow night for our first From Left to Write Twitter chat. You can even win prizes, just RSVP! We’re talking about the appeal of tall, dark, dominant male characters in our books (like 50 Shades of Grey).
