Bout of Books Update: Day 4 (Thursday)

It's day FOUR of the Bout of Books Read-a-Thon. This one is going to be a short post. It's been a long day, not a lot of reading accomplished, and I'm currently in the middle of washing everything on my bed because it would appear that Collin forgot to give Piper her medicine this morning. Ugh.

Elle's Current Stats 

Currently Reading: Lucky Us by Amy Bloom

When I Read Today: Just some this evening. Why do these days keep getting so busy?

Other Things Accomplished Today: Went to work, replaced the power supply in the computer and got it working again (thank goodness). Dealt with a misbehaving preteen, met the new neighbors, stripped the bed and started washing everything from the mattress pad up. Good times. Not sure what we're sleeping on tonight...

Minutes Read Today : 3 hours 1 minutes (181 minutes)

Total Time Read: 15 hours 3 minutes. (903 minutes)

Pages Read Today: 94

How I'm Feeling: The pages in my current book must have more to them. It seems like I'm reading at the same speed, but not getting as much accomplished. Also, this book is a little weird. I'm still not sure what to think of it.

  1. What a great idea, doing this with your son. My daughter and I do something like that. Every month we have a reading contest--whoever reads the most pages gets to pick where date night is that month. It's been a blast.

  2. It might have been a slower day, but you both are still doing great! And just think, the weekend's almost here. :D

  3. You're almost to the finish line-great job!

  4. Looks like you're doing great even though you're keeping so busy. Still plenty more time to read with the weekend arriving!
