Bout of Books Read-a-Thon: Monday Update

Bout of Books

The Bout of Books Read-a-Thon kicked off yesterday and I'm off to a pretty good start! I'm hoping to read 2 books a day and I almost made it yesterday. If only I hadn't slept in!

Number of Books Read Yesterday:


Total Number of Books Read So Far:


Books Read So Far:

He Forgot to Say Goodbye by Benjamin Alire Sáenz (50%)
Matilda by Roald Dahl
The Yearbook Committee by Sarah Ayoub (25%)

I had hoped to finish He Forgot to Say Goodbye the day before so I'd have more time to read 2 books, but alas, it hit me a little harder emotionally than I'd expected and I had to leave off reading it on Sunday night. That's what makes a book great though, so I don't mind really. And now I'm off to continue reading in the hopes I reach my goal today!


  1. GREAT JOB!! You did amazing I love Matilda. Such a great book. Good luck with the rest of Bout of Books.

  2. What a fantastic start! I'm going to look up HE FORGOT TO SAY GOODBYE right now - that's a pretty strong recommendation! Good luck this week!
