Final Comments?
I went hard on the last day to finish the second book. I felt that I didn’t commit a lot of time to reading. Next time I am going to start a day late, as Monday in New Zealand begins before the Readathon timezone and doing the daily challenges a day late was super confusing when it come to posting my progress. I only managed to complete one of the five goals above, but that leaves room for improvement next time.

So, with that, I’ll see you then!

OMG! It’s the 31st and I just saw the sign up post. There are just 2 days to prepare, but I’ve GOT THIS! So many books on my shelves right now that I need to read. Time to get our read on! Like Kelly says, Go forth and sign up on the Bout of Books blog! I’ve never regretted it.

For those that don’t know what Bout of Books is… here is the official blurb:
