Bout of Books Wrap-up

Yesterday was the last day of Bout of Books. I’m pretty happy with how things went, I managed to finish off one book which I had already started, and read an additional two. My goal had been to read over other things (e.g. binge-watching netflix) and I did that, most of the time. I’m hoping to carry on with choosing books because actually I found that if I didn’t start something else then I really did get into the book and it wasn’t an effort. I do have quite a few reviews I need to write now though!

These are the books I managed…

Each day I posted on my twitter…this is my favourite tweet (or should I say the first two in a thread)

I also took part in the instagram challenges. This was my favourite

Next Bout of Books is 7th-13t January. I’ll be well into my nursing course by then, but I hope I’ll be able to squeeze some non-uni reading in

How did your readathon go?

Bout of Books


In some sort of attempt to get out of the pattern of netflix binge watching I have gotten into I’ve decided to take part in my first ‘Bout of Books’ Readathon starting on the 20th August.

The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda Shofner and Kelly Rubidoux Apple. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, August 20th and runs through Sunday, August 26th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 23 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team

I’m working all week so I don’t expect to get tons of reading done so much as to choose it over other things that I might have otherwise been doing

Anyone else planning on joining in?
