Plenty of Socializing: Bout of Books Day 4 Update

Bout of Books Read-a-Thon


Thanks everyone for your support about counting my kids’ books for Bout of Books read-a-thon. Reading is reading, right?

Fancy Nancy and the Mermaid BalletI’m still stuck in the very beginnings of An Echo Through the Snow. I only managed to read about 45 pages of it. On the other hand, I read several books to my kids, Fancy Nancy and the Mermaid Ballet stood out the more than That’s Not My Baby. My husband has the day off on Fridays so I hope to get much more reading done.

Though Thursday was a big reading hump day for me, I did a lot of socializing. On social media that is. I chatted on Twitter with with my fellow participants, visited more blogs and left my daily goal of 5 comments. I even participated in the Candy Challenge hosted by BookSmartie.

Plus I even wrote a review for a book I read last week, The Age of Miracles.

I think I had a pretty productive day!

For Friday, I hope to read more of my books and less of the kids’ books. Keep your fingers crossed
