I almost forgot to sign up for this round! I plan on taking part in the Bout of Books readathon this week! Not sure how much reading I will get done as it's parent conferences and monthly staff meetings after work. But I'll try and get some books read. The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda Shofner and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, May 8th and runs through Sunday, May 14th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 19 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team. Because it is the last month of school I will be concentrating on graphic novels and manga this week. I have 5 books left to read in the Ceres manga (of the 10 I have in my possession.) as well as a bunch of manga/graphic novels in my TBR mountain. Book I may be reading this week depending on time:
I finished my print book in progress last night during the end of the book obsessed winter read a thon so will be picking a new book to read later today.
I am on the middle of 2 different audiobooks at the moment.
Which I am listening on my own during computer gaming and my morning commute.
Which I am listening to with Elengil.
Progress for today:
Today is the last day of my winter break. So it was all about sleeping in, running errands, and getting ready to go back to work tomorrow. I didn't get much reading done at all today. We listened to about an hour of Babylon's Ashes by James S. A. Corey while driving around doing errands.
