Lo and behold, the first two days of this January read-a-thon are past. Well, almost. I’ve still got a few hours before bedtime to catch-up with my reading so the number of pages will probably change by the time the clock hits midnight. I have been making short updates on Twitter but I thought it would be nice to post a bit longer updates here. I’ll try to post every other day (and maybe daily once weekend arrives).
The Bout of Books 9.0 started on Monday. I was officially still on holiday as university starts on Tuesday. No studying, no prepping for the spring semester: just reading. And cleaning the house. Cooking. Last minute flower buying. Attending a family gathering. Eating cake. And finally reading again. I read about 30 pages in the morning, 25 in the afternoon and final 30 before watching Sherlock. Pages read: 85
On Tuesday it was time to open those text books and start revising. I have an exam coming up on Friday (how delightful!) and I spent my afternoon going through the material, making sure I have everything printed before starting to study. I didn’t have any classes on Tuesday so I spent the day at home which also gave me more time to read The Casual Vacancy. I read 50 pages in the morning, and 60 pages in the evening. Pages read: 111
Currently reading: The Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling
Pages read in total: 196
