Bout of Books – Day 1


11am: my reading count currently stands at 114 pages (Pride and Prejudice), not too bad only 11 hours in. I have to apply for some jobs, write and complete articles for, and so I don’t see any more pages being read any time soon!

5.30pm: Reading count is still at 114 pages. I have applied for a lot of jobs, got all my pictures/nick-nacks back on my bedroom walls, and written and posted 3 articles. I’ve decided to get all my activities done before dinner, so I can read guilt and distraction free this evening.

8pm: Instead of reading, I decided to do a new post about book covers, very interesting but complete procrastination. I am going to read now, promise!

Bubble bath: check! Pride and Prejudice:check!
Bubble bath: check! Pride and Prejudice:check!

11:45pm: I have done a little reading, in the bath no less! My page count is not as high as I would have liked, just 146. I will hopefully get some more reading done before I go to bed. I am really enjoying the story of Pride and Prejudice, but finding it rather diffifuclt to read. The language is not conducive to my quick reading style, and is therefore inhibiting my progress. I might have to consider polygamous reading this week!


The Book Scavenger hunt by The Book Monsters


1. A Book that begins with “B”  (for Bout of Books!): Bambi, a Life in the Woods by Felox Salten – the book that sparked the Disney classic
2. A book that has been made into a movie/tv show: To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. My favourite book, and a fantastic film adaptation.
3. A series you love: Harry Potter. I am a Harry Potter geek, I am the perfect generation for the Harry Potter series, and I will love them eternally.
4. An anthology of poems or short stories: The Oxford Book of Comic Verse by John Gross. I am not a big poetry reader, but even I don’t mind a poem that makes me laugh.
5. A book on your TBR shelf, or your full TBR shelves: Casino Royale by Ian Fleming. Can’t argue with 007!
