Bout of Books 13 | Day One

It wasn't the greatest first day for a read-a-thon for me, but I expected that. I knew that it was going to be a kind of hectic morning. And it was that, but it was also exciting, which also inhibited my ability to sit in read but was exciting so I am not too upset about it.

I said, before said meeting which was about an apartment, that I wanted to strive to beat my last record. This is not going to be one of those read-a-thons, because I've got to start trying to pack the, like... way too many books I own to transport them. This is a thing, gahhh I'm so excited but also I own probably about 1500/2000 books? Terrifying.

Anyway - I did, actually, get some reading done on top of all of that.

Number of Books Read: 2

Young Avengers, Volume 1: Sidekicks by Allan Heinberg, Jom Cheung (finished - 70 pages)
Captain America, Red Menace Volume 2 by Ed Brubaker, Steve Epting (started and finished - 104 pages)
Rusty Nailed (Cocktail #2) by Alice Clayton (started - 160 pages)

Number of Pages Read: 234

I am seriously enjoying Brubaker's run of Captain America, but I don't know if I am emotionally prepared for Civil War, in all honesty, I just don't know. Enjoyed Young Avengers, but not as much as I wanted to, am looking forward to hitting the newer stuff (which I read volume one of that before, but wanted to go back and start again, so ended up here).

And Rusty Nailed - just one of those books that you just accidentally find yourself halfway through. Do other people experience this? It's fine so far, mostly just cute.

Also - twitter chat! Yay twitter chat days!

How did your bout of books day one go? Or how did your just Monday go?
