So the Bout of Books Read-a-thon is over, and I thought I would share with you how I did. I aimed to finish at least one, if not more than one novel and if I didn’t finish a book then to make it at least 50% through the book that I was reading at the start of the read-a-thon. Now, I did not finish any books, I am still reading the same book as I was at the start of the read-a-thon, however I did make it over 50% through my current read. At the end of the the read-a-thon, I stand at 59% through Teri Terry’s Slated as compared to where I was at the start of the read-a-thon which was 111 pages or 24% through the book. Now whilst this may not be as much as some people have read over the course of this read-a-thon, I am quite proud of myself, I’ve read 152 pages over the course of this week, and made it almost 60% of the way through my book, a book that I have found difficult to get into but now look on track to finish. So that seems like a result!
I’ve really enjoyed doing this read-a-thon and hope that the next one will be at a time when I have far more time to devote to reading, like over the holidays rather than during a school week!
