Bout of Books readathon!

If you have been following me on Twitter or Tumblr, you may have noticed that I joined the 24 hour readathon on Saturday. I cheated and extended it til midnight on Sunday. Even though I'm sick, I've managed to read three books and I plan on keep my reading mojo going. And then I saw the Bout of Books readathon! So I'm making it a week long readathon!! #likeaboss xD It's from Monday til Sunday, and I'll make sure to post a short little update every two days or so (and update this post of course).

So my updates will look something like this:
Currently reading:
Books finished:
Pages read:
Time spent reading:
Total amount of pages read:


Currently reading: Incarceron by Catherine Fisher
Books finished: None
Pages read: 55
Time spent reading: 1 hour
Total amount of pages read: 55

It was a day filled with cleaning and other household tasks so didn't have that much time to read. Hopefully that will be different tomorrow! I have to apply for a couple of vacancies but I'm sure I'll be able to squeeze in more reading than I have today.

Currently reading: Incarceron by Catherine Fisher

Total amount of pages read: 132

This readathon is turning out to be a big fat failure for me. I spent my entire day doing other stuff and because Fame (remake from 2009) was on, I watched that instead of reading. And after that was some kind of movie about drummers and I ended up watching that one, as well. So my reading time was just.. gone. Ugh. I'm determined to make it though. We're over halfway into the readathon and I really want to finish *at least* two books. I'd better get on with it tomorrow.

Edited on Saturday
So.. You may have noticed that I haven't updated this post. That's because I didn't have anything to update it with. I have read 200 pages in this entire week, that's even less than I usually read! Instead I spent time playing with Scrivener (free trial for NaNo participants!) and I spent my Friday and Saturday solving a jigsaw puzzle of 1000 pieces (I just finished and it is 10 PM when I type this). So.. I haven't really made time for reading. Bad me! I'll try to squeeze in more reading time tonight and tomorrow, so hopefully I'll be able to tell you that I finished the book. Anyhow, this readathon was a bit of a fail for me.. Hopefully the next one will be better! :)


And I have a couple of books that I want to read:
- Incarceron by Catherine Fisher
- Born at Midnight by C.C. Hunter
- Gregor the Overlander by Suzanne Collins
- The Darkest Passion by Gena Showalter
- The Poison Diaries by Maryrose Wood

And if I read all of those, I have enough books yet to read (mostly Galleys that I really should get to xD) At least I won't be bored!!

My goal is to read at least three books - because that means I've read an above average amount of books in one week for me. And since I've finished three books this weekend, I'm sure I can do it! *cheers herself on*

Are you joining as well? :)
