Bout of Books
Number of pages read:
1401/1400 goal
Total number of books read: 3 1/2
Goals Met: All of them

Overall Goals

Read an average of 200 pages a day (1400 page total)

Read a book that's been on your shelf forever

Listen to an audiobook

Read a Classic

Read a book over 500 pages

I was hoping to finish all four of the books I had picked for the week, I didn't quite get there. I got to page 232/424. I got close to finishing all of them, but not quite. I did however finish all the true goals I had. Which are listed below.

I really enjoyed the Read-a-thon. It is the first one that I entered and really was able to give more time to it. Even when I was at work, I was sneaking pages in.

I was able to finish Alice in Wonderland, the last 100 pages of City of Bones I had left when it all started, City of Ashes, City of Glass, and about half of City of Fallen Angels. I did get to finish City Fallen Angels this morning but since the read-a-thon is over, I'm not going to cheat and count it as finished within the time.

I ended up going and seeing the City of Bones movie last night instead of finish the book. After what I watched, I would have really been better off finishing the book instead of the horrible thing I watched, but enough venting on that, there is a post to come about the movie.

I am proud of myself for what I read in just a week. I have read more this month than I think I ever have in a month before. I am very proud for sure. I can't wait to see what my total is for the rest of the month :)

How did all of you do on the Read-A-Thon?? I hope you all met most if not all of your goals too :)

  1. I'm glad it was such a great week for you! My Bout of Books was... not the greatest, but that's just due to everything else that's been going on for me. I'm hoping the next one will be better!


Comments are loved and appreciated :) Thanks in advance!!
