Day 7 Progress...and That's a Wrap! | Bout of Books 10.0

I can't believe Bout of Books 10.0 is already over! It went by so quickly, but it was definitely a blast. I loved all the challenges I participated in, and there were other really cool ones that I didn't end up doing as well. I wasn't sure what to expect from this read-a-thon because this was my first time doing it, but I certainly enjoyed learning and participating with my best friends Christine and Michelle. This is my progress for Bout of Books day 7, followed by a wrap-up of the week:

Books Completed Today:
"Waiting for Godot" by Samuel Beckett
Pages Read Today: 125


Total Readings Completed: One graphic novel, one audiobook, one play, and eight comic book issues
  • Batman: The Dark Knight Returns by Frank Miller, Klaus Janson and Lynn Varley
  • Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) audiobook by Mindy Kaling
  • Waiting for Godot by Samuel Beckett

Additional Readings (incomplete):
  • Blood Red Road by Moira Young
  • The Superman Chronicles, Volume 2 by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster

Total Number of Pages Read Overall: 594 and an audiobook (equal to 222 pages)

Challenges Completed: 5

How I did with my goals:
  • My tentative reading list involved two novels, two graphic novels, a play and an audiobook; I got through the audiobook, play, one graphic novel and part of a novel, but didn't read through my whole list.
  • I wanted to participate in at least one Twitter chat, but unfortunately they were held on days/at times when I couldn't get onto Twitter, so I wasn't able to do any. Better luck next time!
  • I also wanted to participate in at least two challenges, a goal I surpassed by participating in FIVE challenges!
  • As per my hopes, I succeeded in making daily progress posts.
  • I wanted to read at least an hour a day for this week, and with the exception of one day, I did just that.
Bout of Books

Despite not getting through my whole reading list, I think I did fairly well during Bout of Books. The whole point of the read-a-thon is to read more than you normally would, and I definitely succeeded at that so I'm happy with my results! This has been a really fun experience, especially participating with friends; I can already feel myself going into withdrawal so I'm looking forward to the next Bout of Books! :)
