Bout of Books 19 Update – May 8-10

As of Wednesday, we’re 43% of the way through with Bout of Books 19 and I must admit I’m having more fun than I thought I would. And it’s so satisfying to get a few of the books on my TBR list read.

I came out of the gate a little slow and I’m pretty sure that I will not be able to read all the books I planned, but my reading energy has been renewed and I think I can keep the momentum going. 

Here’s a quick recap of Monday-Wednesday

Monday, Day 1 – I fell asleep halfway through Lois Lowry’s The Giver

Tuesday, Day 2 –  Finished The Giver

Wednesday, Day 3 – Read Marjane Satrapi’s Persepolis (Books 1 & 2)

So, how am I faring thus far?

Here are today’s stats:

  • # of pages read: 565
  • # of books read: 3
  • Currently Reading: Vieth Thanh Nguyen’s The Refugees

For the next seven three days, I’ll continue to chip away at the books I chose for the challenge that are short enough they may be read in a day.

I’m still 7 books behind on my reading goals for the year, but fingers crossed 🤞 and with the help of Bout of Books challenge I’ll get closer to being caught up. You can follow my progress on Goodreads.

So, on the reading agenda are the following:

  1. The Turn of the Screw by Henry James
  2. The Refugees by Viet Thanh Nguyen (ARC) (Started 5/11/17)
  3. Bless Me, Ultima by Rudolfo A. Anaya
  4. The Giver by Lois Lowry (Finished 5/9/17)
  5. Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson
  6. Persepolis Parts 1 & 2 by Marjane Satrapi (Finished 5/10/17)
  7. Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
