Bout of Books 8.0 Master Post

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!

Wednesday Update

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.
