As of last night, Bout of Books 5.0 has officially come to an end. I had a lot of fun during this read-a-thon, although I didn’t participate in as many mini-challenges or do as much networking as I would have liked. Thanks to all who stopped by to leave encouraging comments; it was great to hear from you all! I really enjoyed stopping by other blogs and viewing their Bout of Books progress as well.
My goals were (1) to read for at least 30 minutes every day, and (2) to read three books from start to finish. Happily, I achieved both of them! If my extremely haphazard time estimates are accurate, I read for a grand total of 12 hours and 40 minutes. I’m not going to do the math right now, but it definitely averages out to more than 30 minutes a day! 🙂 And I actually read four books from start to finish: Garden Spells by Sarah Addison Allen, Blotto, Twinks and the Ex-King’s Daughter by Simon Brett, Agent of Change by Steve Miller & Sharon Lee, and Bachelor Boys by Kate Saunders. I enjoyed all four, though Garden Spells was definitely my favorite!
