Poor Day Three. I barely got to read anything! Bout of Books – I need you to keep me on my game! And while it was a shame, I can’t wait until Friday night when things lighten up a bit. I’ve been so busy the past few days! Friday through Sunday will be nice and filled with reading, however. 🙂
January 4th – Day 3 Review
Books Read: Mom & Me & Mom by Maya Angelou, Akata Witch by Nnedi Okorafor
Completed Book: N/A
Goal Updates (2/10):
- I will read for at least 60 minutes each day, including at least 4 straight hours on at least one day.
- 4 hours straight were accomplished on Day 1! Thanks, bank holidays!
- I will finish a book which I am currently reading.
- Gilded Cage was not intended for this goal, but I did start it before the readathon and finish it on day 1! I’m still hoping that I can get through a book for work… This is looking like a Weekend activity.
- I will read one book from start to finish.
- Akata Witch will be it! I just… need to read more.
- I will participate actively on Twitter and on my blog.
- Nailed it.

Bout of Books Daily Challenge: Book Spine Poetry: A perennial favorite is back! Go hunting through your books and unleash your inner poet! Use the titles of your chosen books to create a poem. Snap a picture of your creation and share it with the hashtags #BookSpinePoetryBoB and #boutofbooks.
Honestly, this one will be a bit disappointing. I am reading almost exclusively Kindle books, and I don’t have specific ideas on what books to read (only totals), so it’s hard to take a photo. I just… I’ll take a stab at it. <shrugs> I apologize in advance for being a disappointment.
