Bout of Books 12 Day 1 Update

Hurrah! It's Bout of Books time! Although I'll be honest and admit that I only remembered yesterday afternoon...

I started my BoB just after midnight by managing 25 pages of

followed by the longest uninterrupted sleep I've had in a long time! I've been grocery shopping this morning so I have lots of salad and food that doesn't require much cooking along with some snacks and a caramel macchiato. I've got to book some travel tickets and then the rest of the afternoon is mine for reading, well until about 5.30pm.

Progress

Number of pages I've read today: 500
Number of books read today: 1
Total number of books I've read: 1
 
Challenges

Bookish Scavenger Hunt


 Find a book with the following criteria on a bookshelf:

1. Find an author with the same initials as you - Not done, authors with FC anyone?  
2. Find a book with the color yellow on it - Dead Ever After
3. Find an author’s name with the letter “S” in it - Cassandra Clare
4. Find a book with a female protagonist - Cinder
5. Find the longest book you own - A Game of Thrones
6. Find a book with a map in it or on it - Maps
7. Find a book with a face on it (photograph or illustrated) - The Liar's Chair
 
Bonus: Find something on your shelf that isn’t a book.




Face cream, my Hobbit quote postcard and my giggling kritter all live on the bookshelves above my desk, along with various other bits & bobs!
