Official B.O.B 12 Recap

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?

Bout of Books Days 2-4

So while this post is a recap of the past few days, I will say that there wasn’t much to recap. Because I had to finish Jane Eyre for an essay due today, my readathon reading was put aside a bit. However, I think I’ll rescue my readathon goals by marathoning my reading tomorrow night!

But in case you are curious, I read about 30-40 pages of Throne of Glass and about 59 pages of Jane Eyre. Go me?

No matter what your goals are and how you are accomplishing them, be proud of your accomplishments! It’s pretty difficult to balance reading with your everyday life, and many people don’t even attempt it! 🙂
