Bout of Books 8.0 Wrap-up

Bout of Books 8.0 has now finished. It ran from midnight on Monday 19th August and until midnight Sunday 25th August. As part of this challenge I set myself the goal to read  200 pages per day which was the most I have ever read as part of a reading challenge - got to keep pushing the goal posts :-)

So the total page count I challenged myself to read was 1400 pages across 6 days. (I couldn't read on Wednesday due to watching the City of Bones movie - which was fantastic!) This meant I needed to read 234 pages a day to meet my goal and so I leapt into the challenge on Monday and began my reading. So how did I do?

Monday - 281 pages              Thursday - 264 pages              Sunday - 84 pages
Tuesday - 284 pages Friday - 144 pages
Wednesday - 23 pages Saturday - 74 pages

Bout of Books 8.0 Total        1154 pages

So I was slightly off completing my goal. Life got in the way a little once the weekend began but I still read more than I normally would have within the week so I'm very happy with my total in the end. I also completed a number of books from my TBR pile which was great.

Here are the books I read during the 7 days:
Coralina - Nine Princesses Novellas The Island - Dystopian Novella The Prince - A Selection Novella Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief
184 pages
138 pages
64 pages
375 pages
Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found There Audiobook
Sugar and Spice - L.A. Candy Series
192 pages
180 pages

So guys I hope you all completed your goals for the Bout of Books 8.0 readathon and if not I hope you at least had fun reading. I can't wait for the next Bout of Books readathon (9.0) in January 2014. Check our the Bout of Books blog for more information in the meantime.
