Clean Sweep Challenge: Final Result

It’s now June. The days are longer, the sun is out (most of the time) and my hayfever is starting to *really* pee me off. But, it also means that May is long gone, and with it, the Clean Sweep Arc Challenge, so wonderfully co-hosted by Kimba at Caffeinated Book Reviewer and Angela at Angela’s Anxious Life.

Bout Of Books Day 3 with Added Challenge

Bout of Books


Eurgh. Tablets that won’t charge are a major league pain in the butt, and can seriously hamper a gal’s reading progress. I only got one graphic novel read yesterday and only about 8% of my book. I’ve spoken sternly to it though, and it’s promising to behave, so (fingers crossed) I’ll get that book done tonight. Continue reading

What’s that? Another Challenge you say? Bring it!

While looking for this weekend’s Clean Sweep Challenge competition I noticed another one, hosted by Bout Of Books. The blurb on their website explains it best:


The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, May 12th and runs through Sunday, May 18th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure, and the only reading competition is between you and your usual number of books read in a week. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 10 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team


So, next week is going to be pretty heavy-going all-in-all, and this will help with getting my ARCs cleared up quite nicely. I’m aiming to get at least three novels and all my graphic novel arcs (about 10) off my TBR list by the 18th.
