Summary of Bout of Books

Pages read: 611

Books finished: 1

Lessons Learned: My habit of reading multiple books at a time failed me here. 611 pages total, but I only finished the tail end of one ebook. Yikes. On average, I read 87 pages a day, which is well over average. I’m about to dive into grad school, so I’m glad I did this before then! I really enjoyed the photo challenges and if you follow me on Instagram (or look at the left side of this page) you can see the fun things I did with photos. If there’s another of these that’s during a school lull and preferably not while I’m on a business trip, I’d be in again in a heartbeat.

And for the reminder! About 7PM EST tonight I’ll be closing off the voting for my second Read Along event. I’ve only received three votes so far (two off-line) and I’d love to have a big group. I put up an intro post that you can review here if you have any questions on how it works. Please consider joining us!

Please consider joining me for my Second Read Along. Voting closes Monday for what our next book will be. Cast your vote below.

Until tomorrow!

You can follow me on Goodreads, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram. I’m available via email at And as always, feel free to leave a comment!
