Bout of Books Read-a-thon Wrap-up!


Bout of Books was a week-long readathon, hosted here.

Total hours spent reading: 16

Total number of pages I read: 881

Number of books I finished: 4

Books I finished:
1. The Devotion of Suspect X by Keigo Higashino
2. The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
3. Salome by Oscar Wilde
4. Watership Down by Richard Adams

My thoughts: To tell you the truth, I expected more. Which I would have been able to manage, if I hadn’t attended that writing workshop. Then again, the workshop, which I will write about later, was worth it.
I loved this read-a-thon, because, it didn’t mean I had to gather up all my snacks and tell everyone I know I won’t be doing much else except reading for a certain amount of time and not to disturb me. It just meant taking more time out of every day to read than I normally would have. Four books, is a lot, considering how busy I have been this week. I discovered some great new blogs, as well. 🙂

How was your week?

  2. I read 4 books as well. I really like the idea of squeezing more time to read everyday whenever I'm free, even if it's 10 minutes on my phone!

  3. Couldn't agree more, it was definitely a lot easier than a 24 hour one though I would like to check one out just for something different 😀

    Here is my progress post.
