I feel like that went really fast, and I hope to make the most of the rest of my time. So far, I'm pleased with how this week has gone. I have gotten a fair bit of reading in, as well as participated in a few challenges.
Let's look at my progess thus far, shall we?
Later that day, I picked up a collection of three novellas by Yoko Ogawa called The Diving Pool.
In total, I read about four hours that day.
I also participated in the Bookish Survey challenge, and you can see that post here.
On Tuesday I was able to complete The Diving Pool, making it my first Bout of Books read. Afterwards, I continued on with To Kill a Mockingbird. I read for a little over four hours total.
After that, I picked up a book I had started before the read-a-thon began, Samuel Park's This Burns My Heart. This book had me completely enraptured, and I ended up finishing it, as well. So, I was able to complete two more books on Wednesday.
I also participated in the Book Haiku challenge, but instead of doing it on my blog, I did it on my Twitter. I didn't want to commit a whole post to something so small, but here is my original tweet.
One choice makes all the difference in the course of life. Regret taints the rest. (For This Burns My Heart) #boutofbooks @KristinaHorner— Crystal Santos (@infiniteink671) May 13, 2015
