Bout of Books Updates

So I decided not to make a TBR-pile because I simply have no idea what I want to read. I don't have that many quick reads left in my shelves so I'll be reading longer books and I have no idea how long finishing them will take. The important thing for me is to get as many pages read as possible. Since I haven't done that before I have no idea what kind of goal to set for myself so I won't. I just want to see how many pages I'm capable of reading without any pressure. It's going to be so much fun!

In 'books finished' I'll also count audiobooks. I'm too lazy to count every single day how many hours I've listened so I won't keep tabs on that.

I'll start the reading with Library of Souls by Ransom Riggs which I have already started (on page 284) and the listening with The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway (almost finished).

 

PROGRESS:

 

MONDAY

Pages read: 174
Books finished: 1 book + 1 audiobook
Mood: I spend most of my free time reading which I'm really happy about. I managed to finish The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway (audiobook) and also Library of Souls by Ransom Riggs.

 

TUESDAY

Pages read: 36
Books finished: 1 audiobook
Mood: Okay so the second audiobook I finished listening today was Dreamland by Sarah Dessen. After that I started to read My Sister Rosa by Justine Larbastier. The pages are filled with tiny tiny font so thats why not that many pages today :)

Not a Font -challenge:

I own this book but I have a different cover but I hope it still counts!

WEDNESDAY

Pages read: 36 (again)
Books finished: 0
Mood: It was a busy day for me so not as much reading done as I would have liked. Didn't even have time to participate to the challenge!

 

THURSDAY

Pages read: 79
Books finished: 0
Mood: This was a busy day as well but I spend quite some time reading which I'm really happy about. I also spend a huge amount of time listening to Marley and Me by John Grogan. I'm like 80% through it already. I was too lazy to participate to todays challenge.

 

FRIDAY

Pages read: 90
Books finished: 1 audiobook
Mood: I'm really enjoying My Sister Rosa and can't wait to know what's gonna happen next. Finished listening to Marley and Me and started another audiobook – Lovely Bones byAlice Sebold.

 

SATURDAY

Paged read: 120
Books finished: 1 book
Mood: I finished My Sister Rosa today and started Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. I also continued listening to Lovely Bones. It's a really creepy book! I have seen the movie ages ago but don't remember anything about it.

 

SUNDAY

Pages read: 79
Books finished: 0
Mood: I'm so sad that this was the last day of the readathon! I will be doing my wrap-up in a couple of days :) Can't wait to count how many pages I managed to read!

 

WRAP-UP

Pages read: 614

Books finished: 2
- Library of Souls by Ransom Riggs
- My Sister Rosa by Justine Larbalestier

Audiobooks finished
- The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway
- Dreamland by Sarah Dessen
- Marley and Me by John Grogan

Mood:
I'm surprised I managed to read that many pages. I didn't expect it at all! Also the amount of audiobooks kinda surprised me as well. I'm listening them at double speed but still! I guess I spend way more time listening to them than I thought. It would have been great if I had a big list of books I finished this week but I picked up books with a lot pages and not short reads so that was kinda expected. I'm so happy and can't wait for another readathon!

    Oooh, I have My Sister Rosa on my TBR (not for the readathon, just in general) so I’m glad to hear you’re enjoying it! Good luck with the end of the readathon!

I love comments!
