Bout of Books 7.0 Goals and Updates

Bout of Books


Read, whatever I'm in the mood for, and try to relax.  It's okay to change my mind and read something completely different. :)  For now these are my plan, but we'll see how it goes!

Monday 5/13
Finished: Never to Sleep - 56 pages
Made Progress On: The Android's Dream - 4:55, 47% done

Tuesday 5/14
Finished: nothing today
Made Progress On: The Android's Dream - 9:00 85% done, started Dead Waters and The Exile.

Finished: The Android's Dream 10:34:22
Made Progress On: Started The Faceless Ones 2:03, Dead Waters 51 pages

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!

    My bout of books goals

  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!


    My BoB goals/updates

  3. Yeah, I was surprised by Sophie here, too :D I'm glad you're enjoying the audio books :) Happy reading & listening!

  4. Good luck with your goals, I have 4 on my goal list too, although I'm already changing whats on my list to make room for other books. Here are my Bout of Books Read-a-thon Goals and Updates if you'd like to stop by.

  5. I keep meaning to start the Soul Screamers books. Hannah @ Once Upon a Time has got me intrigued.

  6. LOL! I power read on the weekend and dabble in reading during the week. Looks like you made good progress and so did I. Here are my updates:
