Reading push: bout of books 8.0 read-a-thon

So I decided to participate in the bout of books 8.0 read-a-thon, because I am taking way too much time to finish Game of Thrones, by George R. R. Martin.

Bout of books is a reading marathon in which the goal is simple: read more than you usually do. It was created by Amanda and Kelly from Bout of Books Blog.

I am studying at university and working at the same time, so I have very little time for reading. But this week I wanted to give myself a push to finish GoT already, and have decided I must finish it by Sunday.

I am currently on page 482, so I have 325 pages to go. It isn’t much, but most days it’s hard for me to read because I’m really tired. This is why I made myself undergo this challenge: it’s less than 70 pages a day, and I can totally do that. Let’s see how I do! I’ll keep you updated.

How about you? Are you participating? How many and which books have you decided to finish? Let me know!

Read you soon!

  1. Good luck with AGOT!! I just finished it last week! I intended to finish at least 3 books, any 3 would do even if I don’t pick one out from my TBR.

  2. I’m working on Feast for Crows – I’m 25% through but I’m actually not reading it for the readathon. I find that I just have to sit down uninterrupted for the ASOIAF books and read. They are amazing, but they are looooong. So far book 3 has been my favorite. I devoured it. 🙂 Happy reading this week!
