Bout of Books 8.0 - The Finale

Well, that's another Bout of Books over - now the wait until January 6th for BoB 9.0!

BoB 8.0 was a success for me in terms of reading, especially after a couple of blips with books that couldn't hold my interest but as far as socializing goes it was a complete failure again. I just can't seem to get the Twitter/chat bit right which is definitely something I need to work on for next time, if I strike up random Twitter conversations with anyone it's because I'm getting the practice in now!

For the last day I decided to go out on a high and I managed to read nearly three books! I finished Close My Eyes by Sophie McKenzie although I probably should have left this for a few weeks as after struggling with it yesterday I can't honestly say I loved it. I also finished The Spook's Apprentice by Joseph Delaney, loved it and would like the next book in the series now please! Last but not least I started something that was on my original BoB list, Tall Tales From Pitch End by Nigel McDowell, which I'm loving so far.


Number of pages I've read today: 803
Number of books read today: 2
Total number of books I've read: 9

           Jewel of Atlantis - Gena Showalter

  1. Nine books is an incredible accomplishment! Well done on reading so much. I read The Spook's Apprentice a few years ago and really enjoyed it, but I never continued on with the series for some reason. Congrats on a fantastic readathon!

  2. Wow, awesome results! I love taking part in readathons, I don't feel as bad for reading ridiculous amounts of books in short periods of time. Great job!
