Bout of Books 7.0 Update 5 & 6


Ok , so I’m aware I didn’t do an update for Friday. But let’s just not go there ok? My progress wasn’t even worth making a post about, and we’ll leave it at that haha. Saturday was a good day though, finished my second book ‘Holes’!! And am halfway through Crossing the Line by Katie McGarry.  So here’s hoping I get to three books by Sunday Night.

Yay, I finished my first book on Thursday. I'm super happy with my progress so far, considering much of my spare time has gone into my soon to be due assignments.  I have a 3 day weekend coming up too, so hopefully I'll get a lot more reading done and post up the reviews that have been slowly building up. I've been checking out other people progress, and everyone is doing so great! Keep it up guys :)

Wednesday was a pretty slack day for me. I had class in the morning and then a field trip to a local shelter. I was pretty pooped by the end of it, so of course a Nana nap was in order teehee. However I did get some reading done and I’m pretty close to finishing my first book, which is the longest of the ones I plan to read. Yay! So far I'm pretty happy with my progress . I usually only read a book a week, if I'm lucky and I'll be happy if I get to finish 2 books this week :)

Tueday has definitely gone a lot better on the read-a-thon front. Unlike Monday I received plenty of reading time due to hurting my back which kept me off work for the day (I work as a student veterinary nurse/cattery girl, so picking up Bernese mountain dogs and other animals of the like, wasn't really in my best interest haha). So I was lucky enough (depending on how you look at it) to be bed ridden and get a lot of reading time in. I also was shirked of my household duties for the day which was a bonus :)

Well Day 1 went pretty terribly haha My only reading for the day consisted of 30mins quick reading before bed. I started the day with full intentions of dedicating my entire afternoon to the read-a-thon, but like kind of got in the way. Laundry needed to be folded, dinners to be made, and groceries to be brought (which was a major mission, since my adorably forgettful partner forgot to bring his wallet to the store haha). 

However I was able to finish the last few pages of the book, I've been wanting to finish all weekend. I also have a fully stocked pantry with lots of reading nibbles too, so the day wasn't a complete waste.....
...Tomorrow I'll do better :)

Number of pages I've read today: 48
Total number of pages read:  48
Total number of books I've read: 0
