Games of Book-a-thon: Round 1 and Sims-a-thon | Update

Evening Westerosi and fellows sims! Welcome to a Round 1 of Games of Books-athon and Sims-a-thon update! This month has gone by really quickly and holiday preparations for Russia next week are now well under way. I am planning on taking things to read on holiday, obviously, I can’t survive without books even while I’m away, but I am conscious that my reading rate may slow down and that I might not want to take some of the Games of Booksathon reads with me as they are heavy longer books.

Both readathons are running simultaneously from June 1st to June 30th, so I have managed to get every read so far to cross off a prompt from each readathon. I am really pleased with my progress so far and have gone from feeling woefully behind to quite on top of things pretty quickly!

Bout of Books 23: Day 1 and 2

Good evening everybody! How are you all, how are you all getting on with Bout of Books so far? I didn’t manage to post yesterday after a computing disaster, but the good news is my laptop is back to sort of behaving, so I’ve been able to catch up a little bit! What are you reading? Did you take part in the twitter chat? Sadly it fell at 2am for me, which is too late to do and still get up for work. There will be another one at the weekend if you missed out! Don’t forget, you can still sign up, so make sure you’ve added your link here.

I’m also a Bout of Books expert, here to help the lovely ladies at Bout of Books with all your readathon related enquiries, and to offer all round support and help for the readathon! So please, comment on my updates, and tweet me here!

Bout of Books 22: Day 1

 

Guess who’s back, back again, Guess who’s back, tell a friend, yes yes yes it’s Bout of Books Time. I had completely lost my reading mojo, but excitement about my favourite readathon got me back in the reading mood last night and I could not be happier about that fact!

We’re all friendly, fun, and book obsessed, so if you’d like to take part, it’s not too late to sign up here! There will also be a Twitter Chat at 8pm CST (TZC) so if you’re up and about online, you should definitely take part. Make sure to follow @BoutofBooks and use #BoutofBooks when sharing posts on social media! I’m not sure I will be taking part in this one as it falls at 2am local time for me, but there is another one on Saturday if this time doesn’t suit you!

Bout of Books 20: Day 5

It’s nearly the weekend. Huzzah! Shame I don’t have it off. It’s nearly the end of the readathon, booooo! Liz is making dreadful progress and might need to stay up for a year to actually get any reading done during this readathon, boooooooooooooooo! I really should have read more than I did yesterday, but I didn’t, so now I am left dragging behind my challenges. Sigh.

Emma is going home today for the weekend, so I am home alone tonight, so the plan is to have a quiet reading night in and make some serious progress.
