Bout of Books 14: Update 7

It’s almost the end of Day 7 of Bout of Books 14. I’ve decided to do my wrap up now because I plan to turn in early, plus I’ll be too busy tomorrow to do it then. I spent most of today cleaning so I didn’t get much reading done. When I did read, I read a book that wasn’t listed on my Bout of Books reading list, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. I’ve been in and out of the doldrums lately so I’ve turned to Harry Potter to cheer me up.

Also, I learned something new today about Bout of Books, though it’s at a late time. Apparently we could post our reading updates to the website. Ha! I didn’t know this; or, if I did, I forgot. Sucks for me but at least I know now. Better late than never, eh.

As for my overall progress, I think I did okay. Just to rehash, my goal was to read in a different place each day and to read a total of 12 books, graphic novels, and story story, one of which I had already started, over the 7 days of the event. I predicted that I’d read all the graphic novels and the short story, complete 1 novel and the book I started before the read-a-thon. The result was pretty close.

Here’s the complete list of materials attempted. Those crossed out were completed.

Bout of Books 14: Update 6

Yesterday was Day 6 of Bout of Books 14 and I’m late with the update. You see, I was tired. Exhausted, actually. I’ve started to workout a bit and run in the mornings to build up my stamina in case a herd of cows stampede through Washington D.C. I need to be able to outrun them. My body was tender from exercising and I made it tired by walking around the downtown area. Then I went to the zoo and was exhausted by the time I left. For me, that’s a lot for one day so I didn’t get much reading done.

Saturday, Day 6 progress
