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. I’m not sure if I will be able to finish Dumplin’ today since I have over 300 pages left, but I’m going to give it a try. 😉

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

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. 😉
