Sadly Bout of Books is over now :(

To be honest; this Bout of Books read-a-thon wasn't the most sucessful for me but I managed to not only stick to reading at least an hour but I also kept my priorities in order and studied quite a lot daily. I usually have huge problems see studying as more important than reading but this week I finally managed and this feels like a HUGE accomplishment.

My Stats:
  • I read at least an hour a day even on days when I was super busy.
  • I finished 2 books (yeah!) - The Sweetest Thing by Jill Shalvis and Cinder by Marissa Meyer
  • Thursday (the day of my exam) was my slowest reading day because I did a lot of last-minute studying and on my way home after exam I met a friend on the tram and chose talking to him over reading my book. 
  • Sunday was my best reading day with 241 pages. I alternated my day between reading and studying (not in that order).
  • Overall I read 3 books:
    • The Sweetest Thing by Jill Shalvis
    • Cinder by Marissa Meyer
    • Educating Jack by Jack Sheffield
  • Overall I read 813 pages. Now I'm impressed - I thought it would be a lot less. 
The next Bout of Books read-a-thon will be from August 19th to 25th

  1. Congratulations on finding balance. I totally blew it in that department. I was too busy reading and did like almost no work this week.

    I also need to comment on the fact that Gilmore Girls is up there in the banner photo up top. I am watching DVR'd episodes while I am typing this!

  2. I always impress myself more when I look at the final page count instead of just the number of books. You did great! Hope to see you in August! ;)

  3. Three books is really good! Especially when you had an exam too, wow! Hope the exam went well, and that you had fun this week. :-D
