Bout of Books 28 – May 2020

I’m gearing up for the Bout of Books 28! Readathons have been a blessing for my reading life during this period of quarantining and social-distancing, when things are consistently distracting me from my books. If you don’t know what the Bout of Books Readathon is, here is a description created by the hosts:

The Bout of Books readathon is organized by Amanda Shofner and Kelly Rubidoux Apple. It’s a weeklong readathon that begins 12:01am Monday, May 11th and runs through Sunday, May 17th in YOUR time zone. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are daily challenges, Twitter chats, and exclusive Instagram challenges, but they’re all completely optional. For Bout of Books 28 information and updates, visit the Bout of Books blog.

Instagram = 6 posts (85% of the challenges)
Twitter = 9 posts (didn’t necessarily do the challenges, but I gave updates everyday)
Blog = 2 posts

2. Finish 3 books:

Here are the books I completed:

3. Read 800 pages:

I read a total of 1,179 pages.

4. Read for at least 2 hours a day:
