Bout of Books 4.0 - Final Results



Bout of Books Read-a-Thon

After a week of reading, tweeting and challenges, Bout of Books 4.0 is finished! 

I had an awesome time, discovered some new blogs, got to know some bloggers better AND read a whole heap of books! 

Here's the final results!

Books Started Before BoB That I Completed
Divergent by Veronica Roth
The Judas Syndrome by Michael Poeltl

Books Started and Completed During BoB
Zombie Night in Canada by Jamie Friesen
The Raft by S.A. Bodeen
Zombie Fallout 2 by Mark Tufo
Silver: Acheron by Keira Michelle Telford
A Note of Madness by Tabitha Suzuma

Books Started but Not Completed
Gone by Michael Grant (254 pages)



Goals: I wanted to finish 4 books and read two others in full.  I finished 3 of the books I was already reading, and 5 more in full (only one of the ones I had planned to read!).  So although I didn't meet my specific book goal, I surpassed my general one!
Total pages read: 2010
Average pages per day: 287
Other fun stuff
I only participated in the last 10 minutes of a Twitter chat - time zones and other distractions meant I just couldn't get online at the right moment!

I had so much fun with Bout of Books and I would DEFINITELY participate again!  Thanks for everyone who made it so much fun, and to the amazing ladies who put it all together AND managed to stay sane, thank you and congratulations!

  4. First of all congrats to this amazing number of books you read. I'm impressed!
    Have you noticed that if you had read two more pages you would have had 2012? Just noticed it and had to smile.
    Have a nice week!
