The Bout of Books read-a-thon is finished! Here’s my wrap-up of the week:
1. Paraphernalia: The Curious Lives of Magical Things by Steven Connor
2. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
3. The Hunt by Andrew Fukuda
Total pages read: 1120
My goals (some I added later throughout the week):
1. Read 3 books (done!)
2. Read at least 100 pages per day (done!)
3. Keep up with housework (mostly done)
4. Work out daily (incomplete)
I reached all of my reading goals! The other goals slid a little, but more because I got cold than because I was reading the whole time (working out with a cold is just not fun). I’m so glad I got that much reading done! This week reminded me how much I enjoy reading. I tend to find reading is one of those things I put off for no reason. I enjoy it! Why would I procrastinate doing it? It’s an odd thing to do, but I know I’m not alone. Over 15000 people on tumblr liked/reblogged this post:
I completed the first day’s challenge but no others. I wanted to, but because I’m in Australia, by the time they’re posted I was already onto the next day and it became to difficult to figure out which day is which. For the same reason, my daily updates usually didn’t make it to the link-up.
But next time I’ll approach it differently. Maybe I’ll post my updates a day late. If anyone else had the same problem, let me know how you coped!
Leave me links to your recap posts! Did you reach your goals this read-a-thon? Are you also a reading procrastinator? Let me know your favourite book that you read this week!
