Bout of Books 7.0 has ended, and once again, I failed at what could have been an epic read-a-thon. The past week was just not my week, and it shows. I didn't even meet my modest goals for Bout of Books.
Books I Read:
The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey (1/2 of it)
Looking for Alaska by John Green
Golden by Jessi Kirby
Bout of Books was, for me, a solitary experience. I wasn't entirely sure what was going on, but that's mainly my fault for not checking the site and regular updates. Unfortunately, I completed no challenges and I participated in not a single twitter chat.
I'm beginning to think that read-a-thons are not for me. I think they're a really cool, fun idea, but I hate rushing through books. I like to savor books, and sometimes, when a book is amazing, I even go back and reread earlier parts just because I don't want a book to end.
Overall, I don't regret trying out something new, and I may even give Bout of Books another go the next time. But I'm beginning to think I'm just not cut out for read-a-thons.
What about you guys? Do you have fun participating in read-a-thons? Are you a speed demon when it comes to reading or do you prefer a slower pace?
