Bout of Books Update & Wrap up

Bout of Books Read-a-Thon
Bout of Books Read-A-Thon Update for Day 7:
Number of books I’ve read today: 0 (managed 73 pages of the final book)
Total number of books I’ve read:6
The Morning After Death by Nicholas Blake (5/14/12)
The Last Escape (aka: Dishonour Among Thieves) by E. C. R. Lorac (5/14/12)
The Man in Lower Ten by Mary Roberts Rinehart  (5/15/12)
A First Class Murder by Elliott Roosevelt  (5/16/12)
A Dram of Poison by Charlotte Armstrong  (5/17/12)
Such Friends Are Dangerous by Walter Tyrer (5/19/12)
Final book: Garden of Malice by Susan Kenney (73 pages completed)

Well, I feel like the Bout of Books has been a success.  I wanted to finish at least five of the seven books and I came pretty close to knocking out all seven.  The mini-challenges were a lot of fun (thanks to all the sponsors!)--my favorite was the Book Spine Poetry with Books & Shoes a close runner-up.  Thanks for another great read-a-thon!  It really helped me get my reading pace back on schedule.
