Yes ! I survived !
For a first timer, I think it went rather smoothly. My goal was to finish the book I was currently reading and complete at least two books in my Canadian reading list. Done, Done and Done. Yay me. Updating the daily link with your daily progress on the Bout of Books blog was easy, even for the techno-challenged.
Books completed :
The BEST Mistake Mystery
Total pages read :633
Challenges completed :3
Total coffee consumption : 10
For the BoB challenge I chose books that were not terribly long. If your goal is to complete books, then I think that is the best strategy. For the next Bout of Books In August, I may opt with a page count per day instead. We shall see when the time comes.
I loved how everyone was engaging and easy to connect with. Book lovers are just great people !! It was also nice to see what everyone else was reading, if they were enjoying it but mostly : just like myself… life got in the way of reading sometimes.
Oh, the Twitter chats were very fun, I did 1.5 of those.
Overall, I’m kicking myself for not getting involved in Bout of Books sooner.
See you in August for Bout of Books #20 !
