Tuesday (day 2) Bout of Books read-a-thon update

At close to the end of Day 2 of my reading marathon, I am just about at my daily goal.  I am on page 255 of 348 of the truly wondrous Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children.  I also managed to hit my local library after work and I checked out eight books and placed a request for one more through an inter-library loan.  That requested book is a novel from my new Goodreads friend, Lisa Bork, who writes mysteries and whose first book, For Better, For Murder was a 2009 Agatha Award finalist for Best First Novel.  Exciting!  Of the eight books I brought home, only one had been on my to-read list (Paper Towns by John Green), but six others are fun-looking YA (including Need by Carrie Jones) and the last is a quick-read mystery, which I love.  And now for my official progress:

# of books read today (day 2):  .733
# of books read total:  1.733
# of pages read today:  255
# of pages read total:  610

Not bad for only reading at night.  See all you BoutOfBooksters tomorrow!

  1. Paper Towns, I want to read that! Great Progress! Hope you had a good day on your first day.


I love to get comments! Please keep them PG as I am writing for kids and young adults and hope some of them will find their way here.
