Bout of Books Progress Update #1

The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, August 19th and runs through Sunday, August 25th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure, and the only reading competition is between you and your usual number of books read in a week. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 8.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. Today is the last day to sign up and be eligible for prizes!  Go.  Go now.

Here's my progress update for Monday, August 19:

This is a crazy week for me.  I'm a graduate secretary for a local university and all the new grad students have arrived and need oriented.  So...I was pretty busy with that yesterday.  BUT I did finish my first book Andersen's Fairy Tales by Hans Christian Andersen and I participated in the following challenges

Bookish Bucket List @ Sarah Says Read
Pairathon @ Book Pairing

I just started my next book, Murder by the Book by Eric Brown.  So, hopefully, I'll have another notch on my bookish belt tomorrow. [Change of plan....actually reading The Door by Mary Roberts Rinehart.]
