Day 1 of Bout of Books 21 is a past (it’s currently Day 2). I’ve already read more than I have in the last week. It’s been lovely. Too bad I have a full-time job that takes up 8 hours in which I could be reading. (Note: I am actually very thankful for my job, even if it means I can’t read books all day. Perhaps one day I will achieve the dream job of reading books for a living.)

If you don’t know what Bout of Books is, see my sign up post. That post also includes the books I’m hoping to read this week.

Today’s Challenge

Today’s challenge is to share your 2018 reading goals. I shared mine on Twitter.


My Reading Progress

Day 1- Monday
Number of pages I’ve read today: 147 pages
Amount of time I’ve read an audiobook today: 2 hours
Number of books I’ve finished today: 0
Books read from: LamentRenegades
Totals: 147  pages, 2 hours listened, 0 books finished

I completely forgot that I had Renegades by Marissa Meyer downloaded onto my phone. I started it a while ago and just wasn’t in the mood for audio. But this read-a-thon has reengaged me in audiobooks and I’m loving listening to Renegades on my commute. I even have my headphones out to listen while I walk from my car to my office (it gets me an extra 12 minutes of reading time in!).

Lament is…strange. I’m really not sure how I feel about it. I’m just over halfway and I’m going to try to finish it tonight. Then I’ll be able to dive into We Should All Be Feminists.

How is your reading going?
