Here I will be posting about my progress for the Bout of Books 10 read-a-thon during the week. If I take part in any challenges, this is also where they will go.
My goals for the read-a-thon can be found here.
Pages read so far: 841 | Books/novellas finished: 3
Challenges: Retitle Your Current Read
Today’s challenge is brought you to by Oh Magic Hour, and it is to give a new title to the book you are currently reading, or have read during the read-a-thon.
I am currently reading Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare, and I would rename it Magnus Bane in a Waistcoat, because that’s what I’m looking forward to most! :D He hasn’t made an appearance yet in the book, but all clues point to the fact that it will happen very soon. I can’t wait!
I was out almost all day, shopping with my sister. All my reading was done on the subway to/from the city. So, not much at all was read that day, but I had fun!
I’ve beginning to feel like a 100 pages is my max in a day… Then again, I’ve been spending my time on challenges and watching other people’s progress, too.
