Bout of Books 8.0 Goals/Updates
Well, Bout of Books is almost here so it is time I set some goals for myself. I haven't really been in much of a reading mood lately but I have been finishing graphic novels like crazy. Those short reads are just what I need to continue reading. Since this is my first time taking part in Bout of Books I am going to try to be as realistic as possible.
So for my reading goals I am going to try to listen to an audio book at work everyday, and try to work in some reading of my regular books each day. I may not finish all of the books I have listed here but this is what I am shooting for. I want to try to listen to Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion, and I know I wont finish it but I am hoping to start reading Garment of Shadows by Laurie R. King. I also plan on reading Green Lantern Vol 3: The End by Geoff Johns.
Books to Read
I will be posting updates as I go. I will try to add them daily but if there isn't anything to report I wont. Check back to this post for my updates. I wont be doing separate posts for each update I will just post them here.
So I didn't get any reading in today, but I'm ahead of my goals already. I finished Warm Bodies, and Green Lantern Vol 3: The End. Both books were pretty good. I started:
I was also hoping to start Garment of Shadows but it has yet to arrive. I am hopeful it arrives this week. I will also be reading a new Graphic novel once I figure out which one it will be.
Today I actually got quite a bit of reading in. Listened to the first disk of 9 of Storm Front. I also started reading:
Had a busy day so not a lot of reading in. I see others have had a mid week slump and I can't think of a better term for it. I listened to all of disk 2 of Storm Front, and half of Disk 3 today. Other than that no reading. I did participate in the TBR challenge hosted by Musings of a Bookship Girl had a lot of fun thinking about what books I would buy if I could right now. Hopeful to get more reading tomorrow.
Well I was kind of a book bum today. I hardly read at all and the only reason I listened to Storm Front was because I made myself. I listened to another disk. That puts me in the middle of Disk 4, I did have some down time at work and I read another 4% of Sons of Moriarty. For my first blog event I haven't been participating like I had hoped. Maybe things will look up for me on Friday.
I got quite a bit of Storm Front listened to. I ended on disk 7 today and only have 2 and a half disks left till the end of the book. I am hopeful to get this finished by the end of the challenge. Didn't participate in any challenges today I completely forgot about them.
I actually got a good bit of reading in today. I listened to half of disk 7 of Storm Front so getting close to finishing this. Possibly by the end of the challenge. I also read 14% of Sons of Moriarty putting me at the 48% mark. Better short stories than at the beginning but not quite half way there yet. Not a bod read so far. I also participated in the Bookish Wishes challenge put on by Kelsey's Cluttered Bookshelf. Pretty proud of myself for getting so much read today, even while I was at work. Very slow day.
I almost made it to finishing Storm Front. Fell asleep last night with 10 min left of it. Other than that I didn't read anything else nor did I do any challenges today.
So here is the scoop. I had a blast!!! This was my first event as a blogger because I have only been blogging for just over a month. I was told about this by a friend who also blogs and I'm so glad I did this. I can't wait for the next Bout of Books.
As to my goals I pretty much finished my initial goals when this started. I read Warm Bodies, and Green Lantern Vol 3: The End. Since I finished those at the begining of this event I added Storm Front and Sons of Moriarty to my goals. Almost finished Storm Front but just fell shy. I get sleep when I can because we have a beautiful 3 month old in the house so the reading took a back seat to sleep.
I didn't start Garment of Shadows becuase of shopping issues and it didn't arrive till after this started. I also got Joyland by Stephen King so I had some decisions to make. I started Joyland today. I had an absolute blast. I wish I would have participated in more challenges but there is always next time.
