Bout of Books Expert

It’s Bout of Books this week (one of my favorite readathons EVER!)!!! I love the community surrounding Bout of Books, the Twitter chats, & just how fun it is! There’s no failing & any goals you set are up to you. There are daily little challenges, and those are pretty fun, too! This post will show my progress throughout the week.

Day 1: Monday

Time Read: Approximately 2 hours

Time Listened: About an hour

Pages Read: 208 pages

Finished: Macbeth by Jo Nesbo (so great!) & Logical Family by Armistead Maupin–both started prior to Bout of Books!

Currently Reading: I am Malala by Malala Yousafzai with Christina Lamb

Currently Listening: We Need More Wine by Gabrielle Union (narrated by the author)

I did pretty good for Day 1! I participated in the Twitter chat & stayed up wayyyy too late finishing Macbeth. I read for longer than my daily goal time & I’m making some good progress!

Day 2: Tuesday

Time Read: 2 hours and 46 minutes

Time Listened: 1 hour and 26 minutes

Pages Read: 225 pages

Finished Books for the whole Bout of Books: Macbeth by Jo Nesbo (so great!), Logical Family by Armistead Maupin, and I Am Malala by Malala Yousafzai with Christina Lamb–all started prior to Bout of Books!

Currently Reading: The Leavers by Lisa Ko

Currently Listening: We Need More Wine by Gabrielle Union (narrated by the author)

Day 2 was even stronger than day 1! I finished I am Malala, which was super inspiring. I also started The Leavers, which I’ve had for awhile and been planning on reading. This week, I’m reading a lot of books I own that I hadn’t yet read…and it’s helping me stick to my focus on Asian Pacific American authors for Asian Pacific American Heritage Month. I hope you’re all enjoying Bout of Books if you’re participating!

Day 3: Wednesday

Time Read: 45ish minutes

Time Listened: 1 hour and 4 minutes

Pages Read: 35 pages

Finished Books for the whole Bout of Books: Macbeth by Jo Nesbo (so great!), Logical Family by Armistead Maupin, and I Am Malala by Malala Yousafzai with Christina Lamb–all started prior to Bout of Books!

Currently Reading: The Leavers by Lisa Ko

Currently Listening: We Need More Wine by Gabrielle Union (narrated by the author)

Day 3 was not my strongest. I stayed really late at work (yay packing up classrooms?), and grabbed dinner with a friend, so I didn’t get much read–but I stuck with the audio on my commute & I’m really enjoying it!

Days 4 & 5: Thursday & Friday

Time Read: No minutes 😦

Time Listened: 2 hours and 19 minutes

Pages Read: No pages.

Thursday & Friday were super busy for me, with a family cookout after school for our students and then Friday just generally being a busy day for me. I was just too tired to crack open my book, but I did get a good bit of audio in! I’m so looking forward to shirking my responsibilities and reading this weekend!

  1. I cannot wait to hear what happened over the weekend and how you wrapped things up. I love reading your updates because they help me realize how attainable these sorts of things are. I guess I must participate in Bout of Books this coming winter, hm? 😉
