It’s the end of the second day of Bout of Books 14 and, as predicted, it went well. I got a lot reading and travelling done, which proves that if I want to focus on a book, I should travel somewhere. I just love reading in vehicles.
“Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self.”

Bout of Books 14 has officially begun. I doubt I’ll get through all the material I’ve selected to read but I’ll have fun trying. I’d like to say I started this read-a-thon with a bang, but I didn’t. It’s so hard to tear myself away from the internet and the TV, when the internet is unavailable. But once I settled down to read, I was golden, as long as I didn’t hear any notices from my Ipad or phone. It’s so hard to stay focused when reading at home. Maybe tomorrow will be better.
