Bout of Books 7.0 Goals and Updates



Bout of Books

Made Progress On: The Android's Dream - 9:00 85% done, started Dead Waters and The Exile.

Final comments:  So I didn't get too many real pages read, but over 18 hours of listening?!  I remember when I would take a month or so to listen to 1 audiobook!  I may catch up to my Audible account yet!  Thanks again to Amanda and Kelly for being such fantastic hostesses!  Can't wait for the next Bout-of-Books!

  1. Good luck on your goals. I think 4 books is perfect and you should be able to get through all of them!

  2. Your right, it's ok to change the books/goals the main thing is to read, read, read! So if that book isn't doing it for you, or you get less time than you anticipated, it's ok ;) Main goal is to read and have fun!
