In some ways, Bout if Books 12 was kind of a fail for me. I didn’t finish a single book start to finish, although I did finish books I’d already started. However, that’s when I realized I missed the point of bout of books. Bout of Books is supposed to get you reading and excited about reading. It isn’t your fault if life decides to get in your way and give you little time to read. What matters is you TRIED, and you read, and you had fun. And that’s why I love readathons.
Now for the actual readathon recap, I finished Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë, and am still reading Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas.
If you’ve never read Jane Eyre for any sort of school assignment, you should. Usually, I’ll be honest, I dread reading books for school. They mean I can’t read what I actually want to read. But I was pretty darn excited to hear I could read Jane Eyre for our feminism unit. So, I took my time reading it, for my self and, of course, for my essay. Six pages of essay writing later, I felt pretty darn accomplished, even though I didn’t actually meet my “goal.”
So how did you guys do? Did you get some good reading in?
