Bout of Books

If you didn’t catch my post on Sunday, I’m participating in the Bout of Books Read-a-thon. It’s a fun event aimed at reading lots and participating in challenges too. Check out my sign-up post to see my read-a-thon TBR. And follow the read-at-thon on Twitter by searching #boutofbooks.

Over the last two days I’ve snuck in a bit of reading on both my print book (Grace Kelly) and my audio book (Simon). I haven’t yet finished a book.

Bout of Books 19: Days 1 & 2 Update

Current reads: A Night in with Grace Kelly and Simon VS the Homo Sapiens Agenda
Pages read today: ~ 360 (Grace Kelly) and 65 minutes (Simon)
Total pages read: 360 pages and 65 minutes
Books finished: 1

I’m updating this on the morning on Day 3 to change my pages from 150-360 because I stayed up waaaay too late last night and finished Grace Kelly. It was lovely. I didn’t want to put it down. I needed to k ow how it ended. 🙂


  1. I participated in the #insixwords challenge on day one.

2. And here is challenge number two!

Not a font: Share a book cover where illustrations are part of the typography of the title.

redheaded stepchil by johnnie walker

Redheaded Stepchild by Johnnie Walker. This book is actually the script for a play. It’s sitting on my shelf waiting to be read. I know it will be really funny and really sweet.

Nicholas is a twelve-year-old with red hair whose dad just remarried. His new stepmom is a chain-smoking, ex-Jehovah’s Witness. Tomorrow at lunch, the biggest boy in grade six plans to beat him up—he even made a Facebook event. Should Nicholas skip school, even if it means missing the chance to audition for the class play and impress his English teacher?

How cool is that cover? With the title text made of the same squiggly rope as the boy’s hair? I love it.

How is your read-a-thon going?
