Bout of Books

Time Devoted to Reading

I really wanted to keep track of my hours that I read but sadly I didn’t. I do know that I would read in chunks with breaks to make breakfast, lunch, then in the afternoon Michael had a dentist appointment and after his appointment we did some shoppping and then came home and had supper so I didn’t read much in the evening.

Daily Challenges:

The first daily challenge I am taking part in is hosted by LuLo FanGirl

Make a playlist centered around at least ONE of the books you plan on reading during the read-a-thon. Because this is a very simple challenge, you need to have at LEAST 5 songs on your playlist. Be as specific or as vague in your selections as you wish, but have FUN with it!

The Book I am reading is Way To Go by Tom Ryan.

One of the things mentioned in the book so far has been the arrival of a new girl from NYC and she comes with a bag of mixed cassettes and it got me thinking about the time my and my friends use to make mix cassettes so here is my list:

  1. Shattered Dreams by Johnny Hates Jazz
  2. Maneaster by Hall & Oates
  3. Fast Cars by Tracey Chapman
  4. Send Me an Angel by Real Life
  5. The Boys of Summer by Don Healy

I also took part in The Book Monsters Bout of Books Scavenger Hunt and if you want to see what I posted please check out my instagram.
