Sooooo here is my wrap-up for the Bout of Books read-a-thon! I had intended to participate more actively in the event, but unfortunately in the end I was too busy. I also think the read-a-thon was too big for my liking so I wasn’t sure where to begin… I kind of felt I wasn’t able to really connect to other participants (besides my friends who were also participating). Alas, but that’s just me personally!
Anyway, earlier on I stated my goals for the read-a-thon:
- Finish Forbidden Colors by Yukio Mishima
- Get to page 123 in Krabat by Otfried Preußler, because that means I’ll have finished the ‘first year’, in other words part one of the book
I’m happy to say… I succeeded at both my goals! I finished the first part of Krabat first, and then continued to struggle on with Forbidden Colors. I’m glad I finished that one, it was definitely a case of love and hate!
In total I read 376 pages. I stopped tracking the time at some point…
