Bout of Books 21 ~ Wrap-Up

Bout of Books

Another BoB done, and I did pretty well. Funny, I looked at my last BoB and I mentioned coming down with a cold during it, and I started this one with a cold, so hopefully that trend doesn't continue for the next BoB, cuz it sucked. I met my goal and read some good shorter books to get a good start on my Goodreads Goal. It was a good BoB overall. See y'all at the next one.

Bout of Books 21 ~ Day 4

Bout of Books


I'm finally feeling human again after having a cold for about 2 weeks. That wasn't any fun. With Day 4 I spend some time reading and got in a few good novellas. Looking forward to reading some more.

Bout of Books 21 ~ Day 3

Bout of Books


Feels like I spent all day yesterday reading, but I have very little to show for it, with only one book completed. :/ I did read most of a 2nd one but couldn't quit finish it up before sleep took me away. Since I'm still fighting off the last of this cold I didn't try to stay up to finish it. Still, stinks that I felt like I read a lot and only finished the one book.

Bout of Books 21 ~ Day 2

Bout of Books


Another day of Bout of Books, not as bad as my Day 1, but just novellas today. A friend of mine introduced me to Quincy Harker, so I read through the first 4 books of that series, I find him quite funny. It was enjoyable and quick reads.

My Reading Goal for 2018 is to read 300 books this year. I didn't make it last year, and that doesn't bother me if I don't, so I'm just aiming for it again this year. Just depends on if I do more gaming or reading, last year I did more gaming, so I didn't mind that I wasn't reading as much. I hope to do a little more reading this year, but still get my games in.
