I'm taking part in Bout of Books!

 

This will be the twentieth time I've taken part on Bout of Books and I can't wait to get started! I will be away Fri-Sun so won't get as much read as normal but will do what I can.



The Bout of Books readathon is organized by Amanda Shofner and Kelly Rubidoux Apple. It’s a weeklong readathon that begins 12:01am Monday, May 10th and runs through Sunday, May 16th in YOUR time zone. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are reading sprints, Twitter chats, and exclusive Instagram challenges, but they’re all completely optional. For all Bout of Books 31 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team

Closing Survey

How would you assess your reading overall? 
Way less than normal. This RAT was so much about getting to see my best friend again. I had a good time and I'm fine with that. 
Did you have a strategy, and if so, did you stick to it? 
Oh, I did. I planned to focus on Addie Larue and finishing it. That didn't happen. 
What was your favorite snack? Banana Dip 
Wanna volunteer for our next event? Stay tuned for the recap post!

Hour 19

 

When the kitties look like this it's time for bed.


I read for 61 minutes. I read 15 pages in Green River Serial Killer by Pennie Morehead (and wound up discussing it a lot with Nancy.)  And now it's time for bed.

Most of this time was spent watching soccer. Sadly we lost to Portland 2-1. I did get some reading in though. I read for 60 minutes and read 20 pages.

#ForeverOrange


Hours 13-15

 


We ordered dinner this hour, had dinner and started watching our game. I started reading Green River Serial Killer: Biography of an Unsuspecting Wife by Pennie Morehead and thanks to my newly discovered love of true crime I actually started loving a book! I read for 80 minutes and read 22 pages.

Andie took my seat as soon as we went to watch the game.
