bout of books: wrap up

Bout of Books

Bout of Books 14 wrapped up Sunday night, and I consider my participation a great success. I read every day last week, finishing three books in various states of progress and read a couple chapters in a fourth.

Because everything was already partway through when the week began, I don’t have a complete tally of pages read, but I’d guess somewhere in the 600+ arena would be about right.

  • I read two chapters of Unrivaled, about the UConn-Tennessee rivalry in women’s basketball.
  • I raced through Circus Mirandus, a charming middle-grade novel about a boy whose seriously ill grandfather needs a miracle promised long ago by a magical circus performer.
  • I completed Hyperbole and a Half, Allie Brosh’s illustrated/graphic memoir/essay collection.
  • And I finally, after having it out of the library for seven months (thanks, DCPL’s generous new renewal program), finished the final few chapters of Signed, Sealed, Delivered, a look at the merits of letter-writing.

Out of the pages, I participated in both Twitter chats and a blogging challenge and enjoyed considering my answers to several others I didn’t write early enough.

I didn’t quite get two bookish posts in last week, but one progress post and a wrap-up post is better than the last Bout I took part in.

I look forward to participating again in January and hope you’ll consider doing so, too.
