Posted August 16, 2015 by Stormi in Misc. / 10 Comments

BoB14-200x200So it’s time for Bout of Books and since I always have a ton of books I need to read I am never afraid to join up on a challenge. 🙂

The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, August 17th and runs through Sunday, August 23rd 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 14 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team

Update 6:

So yesterday I had a really great listening day. Grant it they were all under five hours (one only being like ah hour and a half), but still I started and finished three review audios yesterday. Then I finished up a longer review audio that I was working on as I only had a few hours left of it. 🙂 So all together I finished four audios!

The Bali Mystery – About five hour listen but did it on 1.5 so it went quicker – FINISHED

Ashes of War – About a three hour listen but on 1.5 it went quick – FINISHED

Artemis’s Hunt – Novella so only an hour and a half – FINISHED

Hungry like the Wolf – Only had like a couple hours left of this one so got it in as well. -FINISHED

A Madness so Discreet – 33% (will all that audio listening I didn’t do much actual

Total books finished: 8 !!!!! 🙂

Last update! It’s a Wrap!

I wasn’t sure how I was going to do going into this at the beginning of last week, but I had a really slow week allowing me to get in some good reading time. I was really surprised I finished 8 books even though three of them were short.

I was in the middle of two books and they are:

A Madness So Discreet – 58% – strange dark read

Dying Wishes (audio) – probably around 40% – I am enjoying this cozy series

I had a lot of fun and enjoyed this Bout of Books, can’t wait for the next one!

      You sound like me, if I get through one books I consider it good. 🙂 So far I am doing okay, but really was hoping to read more.

  1. I have been away on vacation for over 2 weeks now-and actually won’t be home until this coming Saturday night. I am so behind on reviews-I have books I have read just sitting on my Kindle. It’s hard to write them when you are much more busier than usual. This does sound like a fun challenge though 🙂
