Library Books Read-a-Thon: Day 4

It's day four of the Library Books Read-a-Thon. Today was an interesting day. I don't know how to describe it other than: not what I expected. I'd explain more, but really it wouldn't make much sense to those who don't know me outside of the blog and to those who do...well, it would probably just be boring. So we'll skip it.

I did do some reading today though. I managed to finish another book and find a new author to love in the process.

Tomorrow will probably be a pretty long day for me so I'm not sure how much reading I will get accomplished. I'm still aiming for my original goals of 4 finished books, 850 read pages, and 840 minutes of reading time.

Here's my progress so far...

Minutes Read Today: 3 hours 23 minutes (203 minutes)

Total Time Read: 11 hours 48 minutes. (708 minutes)

Goal: 14 hours (840 minutes).

Pages Read Today: 287

Total Pages Read: 711

Goal: 850 pages.

Books Finished Today: 1

Total Books Finished: 3

Goal: 4 books.

I love seeing those little progress bars fill up with blue! I'm actually extremely glad I decided to participate in this read-a-thon and that I set myself some goals. Not only has it gotten me ahead on my Goodreads goal, I've also found some pretty great books.


  1. I'm sorry your day wasn't what you expected, and I hope it wasn't in a bad way! You should share, even if I didn't understand it, I personally wouldn't be bored with the story. :)

    1. Oh...I suppose I should have clarified that. No...nothing necessarily bad, just odd. We'll see what happens with it all. If things go in the right direction then I'll share some of it later on the blog. I promise. ;)

  2. I'm glad to see the bars filling up with blue also. You are doing great and it is great to find new books to love.

  3. Great job at keeping with it! My week hasn't gone as expected either, and I'm way behind on the readathon blech. I have finished one book (but I was partially through it when the readathon started, so I don't' know if that really counts, lol), and I'm part way through a second book. I'm determined to finish it tonight, but we'll see how it goes!

    1. seem to have had a rough one. You need a break. I'm sure you'll be able to get a bit more done before the end of the week. And if not...we have the read-a-thon next week to make up for it!

  4. Wow you're doing great! My primary achievement seems to have been listening to books for around 8 hours this week, but it's better than nothing! It's always nice when you get some happy surprises in your reading and the books turn out to be really good. :)

    1. I have a rough time with audio books. I tend to zone out and then fall asleep, even if the book is really good. Needless to say, I try and stick to reading over the listening.
