Bout of Books 8.0: Goals, Challenges, and Daily Updates (#2)

Oooh-kay. New post for the read-a-thon so it doesn’t get buried under my 30 Day Challenge posts!

The goals that shall remain here till the end of the challenge, and end up being crossed out as we go ahead.

Time Devoted to Reading

I will be trying to read all week, but if needed, I’ll take a break day mid week so that things don’t get too serious.

My Goals

Can I finish Gone with the Wind this week? Just kidding! :P

  1. Finish the Hitchhiker’s Guider to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams
  2. Read at least 50 pages of Gone with the Wind everyday
  3. Finish the Etymologicon by Mark Forsyth
  4. Squeeze in another book (about 200 pages), chosen upon the accomplishing the previous goals
  5. Keep up with the 30 Day Challenge
  6. Review 2 of the books I’ve read but haven’t reviewed yet.

Sadly, so terribly sadly, I have no internet at home. For some mysterious reason, I have suddenly lost proper connection to the internet even though I paid the bills very recently. I’m yet to recover it, but we’ll see how things will go about.

Even though yesterday’s progress isn’t as great as the two preceding days of the read-a-thon, I’m quite proud of it. As mentioned in my goals, I’m supposed to read 50 pages per day, which didn’t really happen on the first two days. But reading a 100 pages yesterday makes up for one of the day, and hopefully, I can do the same today and make up for the other one. Also, yesterday, I had a bone-shattering headache most of the time and the fact that I soldiered through a 100 pages of Gone with the Wind and enjoyed them makes it my favourite day of the read-a-thon so far. I didn’t get to participate in yesterday’s chat as my headache drove me to bed a bit early, but yeah…

  1. I hope you’re feeling better today! I was cracking up reading all of your tweets about Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy… Marvin is so funny! :0)
