Ready for another round of Bout Of Books?!

I participated in a few Bout Of Books read-a-thons in the past and I always had a great time, so I just couldn’t resist signing up for the next one. And Bout Of Books 19 is just about around the corner! It starts May 8th and ends May 14th, and for those who aren’t familiar yet with this read-a-thon it’s all about reading as many books as you want/can and having fun along the way. The best part: you can make your own goals! For the official rules, check the Bout Of Books page and below:

You can still sign up until May 9th so there is still time to join the fun! I will write a proper goals/TBR post the weekend before the read-a-thon starts, because I have still no clue what books would be next around that time.

Bout Of Books 16.0 – Wrap It Up!

boutofbooks16

Bout Of Books 16.0 is now officially over, and it’s time to review the numbers. This turned out to be yet another successful and fun read-a-thon… Yay! I managed to finish no less than 7! books, read a total of 2.399 pages and I even read all the titles on my original Bout Of Books TBR as well, which is a small miracle as it is haha. I liked some books better than others, but overall I’m happy with the books I’ve read. And even though I only participated in one challenge this time around, it still means I’ve completed my Bout Of Books goals as well. 😀 Thanks again to the hosts for hosting another fun read-a-thon!

Day 6 of the Bout Of Books 16.0 was another great day and I made it both to the 2.000 page mark and 6 finished books! Yay! This has definitely been a very successful read-a-thon so far.

Bout Of Books 16.0 – Day 5 Update

boutofbooks16

Day 5 of the Bout Of Books 16.0 was excellent and I managed to finish two more titles! 5 books in 5 days was definitely way more than I was expecting… Sure, The Reader On The 6.27 was a short (but really good) read and I skipped a few short stories I already read in Stars Above, but still…

Bout Of Books 16.0 – Day 4 Update

boutofbooks16

Day 4 of the Bout Of Books 16.0 was another great reading day and I managed to finish both my third book and I made good progress with Leaving Time (I’m at 68% now). I’ve also started with Stars Above, although I will only be reading those novellas I haven’t read last year… I skipped number two and three (Glitches and The Queen’s Army), so that explains the high page count for that book. 😉
