Bout of Books 11: Friday Update

Bout of Books

This one is bound to be a short post...for two reasons:

1. I was right and Darian didn't call me with numbers. I'm assuming he didn't read today anyway, so I'm leaving his stats out for tonight. Unless I hear from him tomorrow, I'm going to just leave his stat section out until Sunday. His current stats are posted on my read-a-thon page along with info on all of our upcoming and past read-a-thon's.

2. I'm super sleepy. I keep trying to fall asleep in my book. It's not a bad book, I'm just terribly worn out. It was a long week.

Believe it or not, I did manage to get two challenges completed today. They were both pretty fun. You can find them in a separate post for today.

Now...let's get to the stats before I pass out on my keyboard. I am not guaranteeing any cohesiveness in my thought pattern for this post. I'm even less sure of my ability to construct a legitimate sentence. I apologize in advance.

Elle's Current Stats

Yay! I finally managed to finish my second book. Only 4 more to go... At least I should be able to meet my minutes and pages goal. (As long as I do some decent reading this weekend, as planned.)

How's your read-a-thon going? Are you as happy as I am that the weekend is finally here? 

I'll be back in tomorrow for an update. I may also be back for a challenge post depending on what it entails. I will be doing my best to be around for the Twitter chat that is scheduled for 10 a.m. CST. It means cutting my sleeping in time somewhat short, but I plan on taking part from the comfort of my bed, so that will make it a little easier.

See you tomorrow...and...happy reading!


  1. ugh I wish I could do the chat tomorrow :( (well technically today but same thing) Today was a lot better for than the last two days. I did the book chain but I didn't do it correctly. Way too lazy to try to fix it though

    1. At least you gave it a try. That's all good. Sorry you weren't able to do the chat this morning, but I totally understand the need to sleep. I nearly turned my alarm off and skipped it myself.

  2. Keep going strong!! You seem really exhausted, take breaks and catch a wink when you need to :) My sister is also reading How To Save A Life and she's feeling kinda "meh" about it, what do you think?

    1. It definitely doesn't help that I like to read on my bed (which is overly comfortable). How to Save a Life was okay. I agree with your sister...kinda meh. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't great.

  3. We're almost to the finish line-keep up the great work with your goals :D

    1. Looks like I'm probably going to miss my goals by just a smidge. But we'll see...I'm still plugging on.
