Bout of Books 9.0: Day Three Wrap-Up

Day three down! There was a chat at the end of the day, 8pm CST, 9pm for me and it was awesome, as always. I love talking to everyone and seeing so many people excited about books/reading (seriously, so many people). Onto the updates now.

Number of books I've read today: 1

Total number of books I've read: 4

Wool (Silo #1) by Hugh Howey (completed - 348 pages)

Books currently-reading:
City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments #1) by Cassandra Clare (continued - 131 pages)
Pathfinder (Pathfinder #1) by Orson Scott Card (started today - 132 pages)
Number of pages read today: 611

Total number of pages read: 1,427

It was a really great reading day and my eyes were definitely much better, the taking breaks for even just a few seconds or minutes definitely does some good. And Wool was a completely incredible book, it really just took off at 40% or so, just good god was it good.

City of Bones I've been meaning to reread for a while now. And Pathfinder I've been hearing really good things about, and I had it on my shelves anyway. It is a monster of a book so I don't know if I'll finish it this read-a-thon but I might, I'm already 20% in and it's only day three.

I hope you all had good days, reading or otherwise. And I truly do kind of adore what I am now thinking of as the new Bout of Books moto: "No Failing, Only Flailing!" perfection.


  1. I have adapted that "no failing" motto this week, as bout of books has come at a time where I am in a bit of a reading slump. But that's okay!

    You have been getting a lot done! I hope the rest of your weekend is just as productive!

    1. It really is a helpful motto at points.
      Thanks! And I hope you find a book to kick you out of the reading slump soon. :)
