Monday Maunder: Bout of Books 10 Results

Another week, another readathon, another pretty good week of reading!

Last week, I announced that I was participating in yet another readathon, this time Bout of Books.  I had pretty reasonable expectations considering that I'm spending a lot of time on Armchair BEA these days and we ended up taking a little road trip over the weekend.  Let's start with taking another look at my original goals . . .
  1. Listen to at least 6 hours of my audiobook.
  2. Read a minimum of 600 pages.
  3. Participate in at least two online chats. (I'm shooting for one Twitter party and one Google+ on-air chat.)

So, how did I do?!?  Here is a quick rundown on my stats . . .
  1. Audiobook Total:  6 hours, 4 minutes - GOAL COMPLETED!
  2. Total Pages Read:  589 pages - CLOSE ENOUGH!
  3. Participated in portions of two online chats, one Twitter and one Google+ - CLOSE ENOUGH!

Overall, I call that a success!  

For those curious, here are the books I read . . .
  1. Batman:  The Long Halloween by Jeph Loeb
  2. Batman:  The Black Mirror by Scott Snyder
  3. Living Dead in Dallas by Charlaine Harris (still amongst the pages)
