So this post is going to kind of serve as my summary post for not only the last couple days of Bout of Books, but also my overall summary post because in all honesty – I’ve barely done any reading in the last few days. Friday was my last day on my current contract – I start a new job tomorrow (Monday), as well as having Navy Reserve drill this weekend (which involves me leaving my house around 6am and not getting home until 6/7pm). Don’t get me wrong, I love what I do and serving my country – but it makes for some long weekends. That being said, I made good progress on several of my audiobooks that I was listening to; as well as starting and deciding to not continue another book that I started (it just wasn’t holding my attention, even though its an author that I do enjoy).
Total Pages Read: 451pgs
Total Hours Listened: 25hrs 58min
Sarah’s Key – read 65pgs
The Coffee Girl – read 41pgs
The Gift – read 84pgs
What Stands In A Storm – listened to 6hr 29min
Then He Showed Up – read 36pgs
In The Company of S1herlock Holmes – listened to 1hr 25min (16%)
Fly with Me – read 111pgs
Seduction in Death – audiobook/re-read – Finished
Angel’s Flight – listened to just over an hour, before deciding that I wasn’t feeling it.
I’ll admit that I wasn’t as successful in the reading reading portion of this Bout of Books, but holy shit, when I added up my audiobook listening that was a doozy! I mean, I listened to over a hour day in hours during the course of the week. I guess the ability to sit on my ipod at work and listen to a book while I was neck deep in assessment development helped me. I had a great time participating in Bout of Books (like always) and can’t wait until the next event!
If you participated in Bout of Books, how successful were you?
