Bout of Books 20 | Day 5 Update

Bout of Books

Hello! Welcome to Saturday. :”D My last update was on Wednesday, so I have about three days worth of reading to cover.

Since then, I’ve read:

  • 5 chapters of fanfiction
  • The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss – audiobook: 6ish hours ~140 pages (finished it!)
  • The Broken Eye by Brent Weeks – 53 pages
  • Embassytown by China Mieville – audiobook: 2ish hours ~90 pages

So, not too much page-wise but 8 hours of audio in 3 days is a lot. :”D Hope anyone who’s participating is doing well! Happy reading

Bout of Books 20 | Day 2 Update

Bout of Books

Hello! Happy three-days-into-boutofbooks-day! I quickly realized that daily updates this time around aren’t doable for me… so every other day, every three days it is!

Progress:

The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss – roughly 100 pages (3.5 hours listened)

The Broken Eye by Brent Weeks – 20 pages

And actually… I picked up a fanfiction this week, something I haven’t done in years. I’ve read a whopping 20 chapters of that over the past two days… so that’s where all my reading time has gone, haha. Not goodreads trackable, but reading is reading! 😀 And I’m very much enjoying it.


And that’s it! See you all in a couple days. :”D

Bout of Books 19 | Day 3 Update

Bout of Books

Happy day 4! Today is another work day for me, so we’ll see how much I get done, hawhaw.

For yesterday, I read the following:

A Court of Wings and Ruin: 66 pages.

…which is kinda awful for being at home schmoozing all day. 😛 But hey, it’s still reading, I suppose.

Woot? :”D

Bout of Book 19 | Day 2 Update

Bout of Books

Welcome to day 3! I got a bit more done in day 2 than day 1 but still not as much as I’d like. But hey, I’m still on track for my ‘read every day’ goal, so I’m okay with it, yo.

Reading completed:

A Court of Wings and Ruin: 81 pages

The Gene: An Intimate History: 25 minutes

I realized yesterday morning that I didn’t include the above audiobook in my TBR… whoops. I’m already about 40% through it, so it’s totally on my TBR. IT COUNTS!! D:


And that’s it! I’m going to half price books today so …. a haul is in my future, hawhaw. Hopefully I’ll get a few graphic novels I can buzz through for this readathon. :”D

Happy reading!
