Bout of Books Day 4 (Thursday)
So, I’ve been doing alright with my Bout of Books 10.0 Challenge.
When I started, I set out to read:
The Road by Cormac McCarthy
Let Me In by John Ajvide Linqgvist
Pathfinder by Orson Scott Card
I was able to finish up The Assassin King by Elizabeth Haydon. I wanted to make sure I read it to give me some context for the ARC I have for her upcoming book. I was finished with it by the end of day one.
I then started in on McCarthy’s The Road and have really enjoyed it. That same day, I read a novelette by R.J. Palacio, The Julian Chapter: A Wonder Story.
Day three, though, was a slow one.
Work was hard and I wasn’t able to get anything read. I came home exhausted and read a total of 30 pages. I was pretty uninspired to read.
I did pull out a graphic novel, though. I finished the first half of Manifest Destiny Vol 1. It’s a pretty campy story about Lewis and Clarke. It features buffallo headed men and plants that turn humans into zombies.
Today, I’m getting into Let Me In . I’m almost a hundred pages in and it’s starting to roll. It’s a better feeling.
Let me know what’s up with you. What’s going on in your Bout of Books challenge?

I slowed down quite a bit today. I might read more tonight, or I might just take the rest of the day as a break, and jump back in tomorrow.

I’m pretty convinced that there’s nothing as beneficial to reading as taking a break. I hope your Friday rocks though! What are you reading?
