Bout of Books Day 1 ~ Evening Update

Bout of Books

Day 1 is almost over! I didn't do as well as my BoB 10 Day 1, I'll have to step it up. I hoped to finish my 2nd audiobook, but I have about an hour left, so I'll be finishing it up after midnight.

I had two books that I started and ended up not liking, so that stinks. :( I gave each over 10% on my Kindle (11% for one, 15% for the other) but had to give up on them since I wasn't into them at all. I hate it when I spend time on a book I end up giving up on, especially during read-a-thons. Today I finished up an audiobook (Fated) that I had read about 25% of before the read-a-thon started. I read a novella, and a novel both of which I reviewed (see below), and I'm listening to the audio I'll finish up in a bit.

I've never been big into comics, but I LOVE the Batman Arkham series of games and I recently started reading the comics that tie into that. In addition to my goals, I also want to read at least 10 of the comics that I have that are about the "Arkhamverse" of Batman. I won't be counting my comics towards my overall book and page count.
