Bout of Books 8.0 Wrap Up!!

Bout of Books

My first ever BOUT OF BOOKS is over!!! I knew that for me it was not going to be easy!!! But I did it!!!

I was suprised and so proud of all the participants that were able to accomplish their goals! Some were crazy (the good kinds of crazy) to read 19 books!! That's amazing!!

I had so much fun participating, not only reading, but also participating in the challenges, which were so cool!

My goals:
  • to read at least 1 book.
  • reading 2 books would be awesome.
  • I wanted to participate in some challenges!!
  • 2 hours reading time during the week
  • 1 hour reading time on Saturday and Sunday
And I accomplished them!!! Wooot!! 
I finished:

And participated in 8 out 11 challenges!!

Quick Facts (they were little but good enough for me)
  • Finished 2 books (one in spanish)
  • 8 out 11 challenges participated in
  • 411 pages read in total
Final Thoughts:
I accomplished my goals, which felt so good. But I would have loved to have read more. The Spanish book, took me a long time to finish, it is what killed my streak, but I loved it!!! I gave "Lock and Key" another chance, and couldn't put it down. I had fun, and I would love to participate in other read-a-thons in the future!! Until next one BOUT OF BOOKS!! :)
