Bout of Books 10 Read-A-Thon Wrap Up


Well folks it has been an awesome week for reading here at Reviews In A Pinch!  In case you haven’t been checking back on our daily progress for Bout of Books 10, we decided to put together a post to sum it all up in a nice little bow.

First of all, participating in a read-a-thon was absolutely amazing!  We will definitely be participating in the next one.  We’d like to give another thank you to Bookjunkiekrystal at Books Are My Thing because she’s the only reason we knew about this bookish fun.

What was our goal again?

We wanted to double our normal weekly total (2 books), so we set ourselves a goal of 4-5 books for the read-a-thon week.  We thought that was a fair challenge, without giving up all of our social time and becoming a hermit.

What we planned to read:

How did we do?

If you have seen our original post then you may be in for a bit of a shock.  We were shocked by how we did this past week.  Not sure if we should be proud, scared or ashamed of these numbers.

  • Total number of books read:  13
  • Total number of incomplete books:  4

As for our planned reading list for this week, that didn’t go particularly well.  We started 3 out of the 5 books listed, but didn’t actually finish any of them.  We’re still feeling pretty smug about reading 13 books in one week though.  Hopefully our head will still fit through doorways after finishing this post.

We didn’t participate in any of the mini challenges, since this was our first bout of books and we were a little clueless.  For the next one, now that we have a stepping stone, we’ll definitely do more within the daily challenges.

So, it seems as though this week was a definite success and we really can’t wait for the next Bout of Books read-a-thon!  Be on the look out for our reviews of all of the above.  So many books, so little time!!!

Congratulations to everyone that participated and to those that didn’t, you may want to look into it.  Happy Reading Everyone!
