Tackle Your TBR Read-a-thon Wrap Up

Hosted by Tressa’s Wishful Endings.  

I didn’t do as well as I thought I would.  Don’t get me wrong, I like Game of Thrones, but it is not one of those books you can just fly through.  Or at least I am not.  It wasn’t the best pick for a read-a-thon I guess, but I did manage to finish three books during this time and am part of the way through two more.

I finished three books and read, on average, about 70-80 pages a day for me.  That’s pretty low for me, but I have been busier at work the past couple of weeks which is where I was getting more reading done.  I have downloaded some audio books though.  I really enjoyed doing the read-a-thon and hope to enter more of them.

Weekly Recap – 09/09/13 to 09/15/13

It’s becoming the running theme for the week I guess.  I started several books, but one had to go back to the library and I haven’t gotten very far in the others.

I Read:

I read 101 pages of Game of Thrones before it had to go back, but I reserved it again.  I’m 57 pages into If There Be Thorns by V. C. Andrews. I didn’t get any books from the library or from NetGalley.
