Dewey's 24 Hour Read-A-Thon

I'm taking part in Dewey's 24 Hour Read-A-Thon.  I've got a sort of list of books to read (TBR to come later), no idea of what we'll be eating and no real plan.  We just got back from England, have a concert the night before the RAT (That was supposed to be last year but was rescheduled due to Harvey.) and a soccer game the day of.  It's going to be a lot less planned out than usual but I'm still really looking forward to it.

Bout of Books Update #7 & Wrap Up

I read 47 pages in Foolish Hearts by Emma Mills and Finished it.  I absolutely loved it.  I started Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon and read 8 pages in it.  My total was 55 pages for the day.

Great (and pretty) Books!
I read 232 pages overall, finished one book, read a smidgen of another and started a new one on the last day.  Most importantly of all I had a great time doing it with my reading partner, my husband.  Bout of Books is always a great way to start the year off.

Bout of Books Update #4

I read 37 pages in Foolish Hearts by Emma Mills.

Wet and rainy out but we were snug in Starbucks.

It was a rainy, miserable day weather wise so the perfect day for us to spend the majority of reading.

Bout of Books Update #2

I read 30 pages in Foolish Hearts by Emma Mills.

Reading at home in the library
I officially fell in love with my book today.  I had liked it a lot up until now but I fell over the edge today.

Bout of Books Update #1

I read 29 pages in Foolish Hearts by Emma Mills, the book I'm supposed to be reading.  Then I somehow picked up another book, The Mistress's Daughter by A.M. Holmes and read 19 pages in that.  Must not be left alone with random books!  My total was 48 pages for the day.
