Bout of Books 23: Day 7

Why oh why is Bout of Books coming to an end all over again? You really would think I’d be used to it by now, considering I’ve done well over 10 of these readathons, but apparently it is always difficult to deal with. The good news is it’s back in January, but the bad news is that’s agggggges away and I don’t wanna think about 2019 right now.

Bout of Books 23: Day 6

I don’t want to alarm anyone right now but tomorrow is the last day of Bout of Books 23 and I am really not OK with this. Not at all OK, but, thankfully Bout of Books 24 is already in the calendar (it’s going to start on January 7th for anyone who wants to plan ahead too). I finish work just as the twitter chat is due to happen so I am pretty sure I’m going to miss it completely, which I am gutted about!

Bout of Books 23: Day 4 and 5

Wow, yesterday huh? Erm, so I kinda forgot to post a Day 4 updates yesterday and was kind of wrapped up in reading that much that I simply didn’t have the time to write a post between work and reading, which is a good thing really right? There was some sprinting going on yesterday with some new friends and I had a grand old time. I’m on a late shift at work today, so I will be trying to do the same when I get home. Anyway, it’s all ended in having a joint 4 and 5 day post, so there we go!

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.

The Full Monte Read-Along: Week Three/Chapters 41-61

Hello, Bonjour, Hola, how are we all? Welcome back to my Full Monte Read-Along updates where we are on a distinctly more positive note than we were this time last week. I have to say that I struggled a bit through week two and was worried, but I’m pleased to report that things have brightened distinctly since the book has headed to Paris. Maybe I just need this book to be in France to enjoy it? I promised I wouldn’t leave all the reading to the end of the weekend again, but of course I did, and for once it wasn’t a bad thing. I was pretty absorbed by the end of it and managed to read the extra chapter that puts my edition/end point in line with everyone else!

I’ve signed up to take part in The Full Monte Read-Along hosted by Laura @ Reading in Bed. We’re all joining together to read/weight lift this French bad-boy, and post about it every Monday, sharing lots of insightful stupid, serious funny, and important irrelevant aspects and thoughts on the week’s ‘assigned’ reading. You can follow my ‘progress’ through my Goodreads and this handily coded spreadsheet that changes colour when I have actually done what I am supposed to.

*warning* spoilers for The Count of Monte Cristo ahead.
