Bout of Books

Time Devoted to Reading

Today (Tuesday) was like yesterday I was reading on and off throughout the day. I had to take Michael to a library activity after lunch so I was able to get a bit of reading done there and throughout the day I was juggling house work and making dinner.

I just quickly want to thank Bout of Books for providing this template for me to use. If you would like to use this template please visit  the BOUT OF BOOKS blog.


  1. OMG I’m so in awe of your reading progress!! And how you’ve managed to (mostly) keep on top of things, definitely need to take a leaf out of your book :)) I’ve only read one book so far– it was one I’ve been looking forward to for 2 YEARS and it turned out just… okay… not the best feeling for #boutofbooks! Nevertheless, will keep reading and all the best to you!

    • Thanks…Before starting the read a thon I checked the calendar to see what was marked (having a child you need to keep on top of things) so I planned to read graphic novels/manga’s the first two days and now I am on track to read books. Its always hard in read a thons when picking up books and it sucks when you pick up a book you were looking forward to and its just okay..i hope you find something good to read

  2. You’re doing awesome! I’m still trying to decide what I want to dive into today. I started one of the books on my list – but it’s a bit long. I don’t know if I want to commit to it. Lol. Decisions! Happy reading today!

    • Thanks Brandie.. I need to get out of the graphic novels/manga’s today and start reading a book LOL although it does feel nice to get some of those out of my tbr pile… Its hard to decide what to read during a read a thon and I have been sticking only to books that I have on my TBR pile.

  3. I love that you are sharing the blogs you’ve commented on and thanks for stopping by mine! Great progress! I think I have only read 60 pages in my book so far. I need to find more reading time!

  4. Wow, you’re doing awesome this round of Bout of Books!! Keep up the good work!!
