This is the first time I’ve ever participated in Bout of Books.
|You and me both sister!|
I’m not sure what I’m doing or what to expect. Ah well, I’m jumping in anyway! I know that I’ll be reading (DUH!) and I’ll probably rock some challenges. I hope to meet new folks and do a bunch of commenting as well.
This will be my master post and I’ll update it whenever I feel the need. (Daily? Beats me!) Now I’m going to go visit some other Bout of Books participants so I can
steal borrow their formats and see how they go about this event.
|Let’s do this!|
At first I was all confuzzled about this event. What am I supposed to do? Where should I go? Well, silly Jennifer, it’s as easy as 1 2 3! Just read more, do some challenges. Big whoop. Not sure what I was worried about. Thanks for your comments gang, you made me feel better about jumping in.
I’m not keeping a detailed page count since I’ve been reading a combo of tree-books and e-books. That would involve math. Math makes me sweaty.
|Me + Math = Not good|
On Monday I finished up Beyond the Pale by Elana Dykewomon. Um, don’t know where this MASTERPIECE was hiding for the last 10 years but I’m so glad that I got my hands on it.
Tuesday’s book was The Affairs of Others by Amy Grace Loyd. It was a fast one that I was able to gobble up quickly. I mostly liked it. There were some wordy sections that made me want to skim. BUT I DID’NT because I am a PROFESSIONAL READER DAMMIT.
Last night I started the chunky Five Days in Memorial by Sheri Fink. It’s 576 pages of nerdy nonfiction goodness and I already know it’s going to be right up my reading alley. It won’t allow for a quick read but I don’t care!
Keep on keepin’ on readers. Go conquer those books.
