Bout of Books Expert

So, if you’ve been following my blog for any length of time, you probably already know that Bout of Books is one of my favorite readathons!! It’s just so laid back and is a great excuse for trying to squeeze in some more reading. I also absolutely love the community & I’m an expert for this round of the ‘thon (again), so feel free to ask me any questions about it!

My goals this time around are to read at least 1 hour per day (in addition to audiobooks on my commute) and to make it to most people’s blogs/Twitter/instagram to cheer everyone on! I would also like to do at least 3 challenges & make at least 1 Twitter chat. You can sign up until Wednesday at midnight here: http://boutofbooks.blogspot.com if you want to join!

Day 1

Currently Reading: The Heart’s Invisible Furies, Spinning Silver, The New Jim Crow, Jane Eyre

Time Read/Listened: 1.5 hours-ish on audio and 50 minutes in print

Challenge: Introduce yourself in six words. I did this here: https://twitter.com/reviewsandRaTs/status/1082430333935603712

Day 2

Currently Reading: The Heart’s Invisible Furies, Spinning Silver, The New Jim Crow, Jane Eyre

Time Read/Listened Today: 2 ish hours

On Tuesday, I mainly listened to Jane Eyre and read a chapter of Spinning Silver. Progress is slow, but I’m trying. It’s a super busy week at work.

Challenge: Dinner Party challenge: https://twitter.com/reviewsandRaTs/status/1082837089786437633

Day 3-5

Currently Reading: The Heart’s Invisible Furies, Spinning Silver (finished day 5!), The New Jim CrowJane Eyre

Time Read/Listened: all told, I know I listened to at least 1 hr of audio each day & read at least 20 minutes on day 3. Day 4, no physical reading done. Day 5, I read for a few hours in addition to my audiobook on the morning commute (so maybe 2.5 hours?).

I didn’t get to the challenges these days I don’t think…but today is a snow day so I think I’ll get to lots of reading!! (And hopefully lots of blog cheering!)
