Bout of Books Read-a-thon: Wrap Up

I participated in the Bout of Books read-a-thon all during last week and really enjoyed it. Unfortunatly, due to the fact that I spent a lot of time at work or on the commute I couldn't participate in the Twitter chats and I also didn't tweet and comment as much as I would have liked. Hopefully I will be able to do this more during the next read-a-thon.

I did manage to read more than I normally would during this week; which means that there is now a huge pile of books I need want to review. Hopefully I can catch up on them soon because my next three weeks will be super busy and hectic (thanks to end of term exams).

Here are some numbers for you:
  • I finished 3 books and started 1 more
  • I read 936 pages in one week
  • I managed to read 244 pages on Saturday (where I had to work too) which were the most I managed in a day
  • On Monday I only read 76 pages which were the least I managed in a day
  • Half the books I finished in 2013 I read during the read-a-thon 

I will definitely participate in the next Bout of Books read-a-thon too.

Thank you Amanda  and Kelly for organizing it and being awesome hosts. 


  1. Well done. I'm in same position of now having a small pile of books to review though did manage to do one review in week.

  2. Congratulations honeybunch! I missed seeing you around this week but hey, so long as you've had fun and done some brilliant reading then all is well! To be honest, I could have done with commenting and Tweeting LESS this week - I might have rather higher numbers to share if I'd had my nose in a book instead, hehe... :D

    1. I missed all the conversations so much during this week but I was so busy - I hate ends of term :( I was pretty blown away that I did manage to read that much. Felt like I did practically no reading at all. Next time we will cheer each other on and I'll send you back to reading - promise. :)

  3. Congrats on the reading you got done! :-) Hope you enjoyed the read-a-thon despite not being able to chat on Twitter so much. And best of luck with the end of term exams! ;-)

  4. Great job! I hope you had a great time. :) Happy Reading!

  5. I've got one review left so I'm not too far behind. Glad you had a great week and congrats!
