This post was due to be posted on the 19th May, so you can tell I am running a little behind.
Today was a good day, but . . . it failed on the Bout of Books front. Another day when I got zero pages read. But whilst I’m disappointed I didn’t read, I’m not unhappy. I had a great day with my family instead.
Books Read Today: 0
Pages Read Today: 0
Books Completed: 2 – DANCE OF SHADOWS, EVERNEATH
Total Pages: 711
At the beginning of Bout of Books 10 I set myself some goals I wished to achieve, as the finish line of Bout of Books 10 has now been crossed I guess it’s time to see how I did.
First I want to talk about the goals I did achieve. Read at least 100 pages a day. I might not have technically achieved this – as I didn’t read 100 pages every day – BUT I still managed to beat the goal (just) of 700 pages in a week. So I consider this a win! Finish reading DANCE OF SHADOWS by Yelena Black. This was a case of I started this book before Bout of Books and I wanted to finish it. Read at least one other book. And I managed this too. After DANCE OF SHADOWS I picked up and read EVERNEATH. I’m really proud of this, as it’s been a while since I’ve managed to fit two books into my week.
There were only two goals I failed to achieve in Bout of Books 10. I didn’t take part in a Twitter chat. This was mainly due to timing issues. I missed the first chat because it was dinner time, the second chat because I was too tired to stay up until 2am when it started, and the third and final chat I completely forgot about until it was over. I also didn’t participate in a Challenge. I totally meant to do this, it just didn’t happen.
Overall, I am very happy with how Bout of Books 10 went. Although I didn’t achieve all my goals, I don’t think 3 out of 5 is bad.
I am also planning to take part in Bout of Books 11 which will run from August 18th to August 24th. I hope to see you guys there, and I also hope everyone had as much fun with Bout of Books 10 as I did.

Great job getting over 700 pages! I ended up dropping out of the readathon towards the end of the week, it just meant to be this round. Next time though 🙂
