Bout of Books: Wrap-Up


The Bout of Books read-a-thon was organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It ended at midnight Sunday, August 25th in whatever time zone we were in. 
 
So....due to circumstances out of my control (detailed in the last update, I won't subject you to it again)...I did much less reading than planned.  I always enjoy doing the Bout of Books read-a-thon because it helps me stay on track for all the challenges I sign up for.  I was hoping to finish at least four books--but that just didn't happen.  Here are the final stats:

Books finished:
  
Andersen's Fairy Tales by Hans Christian Andersen  (343 pages)
The Door by Mary Roberts Rinehart (381 pages)

Paritals:
Poems and Prose by Christina Rossetti (260 pages)
Death at the Bar by Ngaio Marsh (We'll call it about 130 pages--my husband, the math-whiz, figured up how many pages = how many tapes I managed to listen to).
 
I have had my usual good time--participating in about half of the mini-challenges.  Thanks to Amanda and Kelly for organizing this again!

Sorry your reading got derailed. I had the... I guess fortunate?... situation of knowing that my reading was going to be derailed all week, so I didn't make any goals other than to read as much as I could.

Here's hoping next Bout of Books will be better for both of us!
