Bout of Books 10.0: Day Five Wrap-Up

I woke up with the beginning of a migraine today - so a lot of hours were lost to trying to get it to leave, but it finally did. I ended up deciding to go for some graphic novels, they were quick and I have a lot of them that I want to get through, and I'm not up to par right now.

Number of books read today: 2

Total number of books read: 8

Maus l by Art Spiegelman (started and finished - 160)
Maus ll by Art Spiegelman (started and finished - 136)

Books currently-reading:
Once Dead, Twice Shy (Madison Avery #1) by Kim Harrison (started - 110 pages)

Number of pages read today: 406

Total number of pages read: 2,549

Written Today: 5,126
(thought I'd just do this, since I'd been tacking it on the last few days anyway)

I really enjoyed both volumes of Maus, I haven't ready many things that've dealt with the Holocaust but the one book I did read stuck with me (and I want to reread it) - it was Night. Anyway, I highly recommended checking out Maus. 

I didn't end up reading anymore in the other books I'm in the middle of, which is why I didn't list them today, also I'm exhausted. I stopped reading kind of early, hopefully the weekend is kickass, it's not like I have any shortage of books that I'm excited to read or finish.

I have a feeling I won't be getting much done tomorrow. There's a few things going on and we're also going to try and get the ACs in because it's starting to get warmer.

What are you currently-reading and how is your Bout of Books going? 


  1. I'm sorry about the migraine. I had one last week, it was no fun. Glad it went away quickly for you! I'm currently reading "The Hollow Chocolate Bunnies of the Apocalypse" by Robert Rankin. My RaT is going great, I've completed 10, finished up another (that I didn't count towards my total read) and am on two today, this one and the one I'm listening to at night. :)

    1. That's all so awesome! And that sounds like a great book just by the title for that book. So happy your read-a-thon is going so well! :)
