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

Bout of Books Day 1 And Trillium Review



Bout of Books


If you saw this post on Saturday, you’d see that I’ve signed up for the Bout Of Books challenge, and part of it is taking part in other blog’s comps and activities. Not only does this help with participation, but it also gets your blog seen by other bloggers.


Today’s challenge is If You Like X, Try Y’   hosted by The Book Barbies and last night I read the perfect thing for it.


If you like sci-fi, with a touch or romance, and stand-alone graphic novels, then Trillium  by the brilliant Jeff Lemire  is perfect for you. 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.
