Monday Maunder: Bout of Books 13 Results

Last week in my weekly ramblings, I mentioned that I would be devoting my week to Bout of Books 13.  I had a stack of five books that I had hoped to get to, and now is the time to talk about how the week actually went.

The week started off very slow.  I woke up on Monday morning feeling very much under the weather.  On top of that, we had had a gas leak from a few days before that was finally getting fixed.  That meant that I was not able to get much rest with workers trampling through my house.  Then, my garage door broke for the second time in less than a month.  Thankfully, we have had very responsive landlords to assist with all of this.  But, alas, my reading still took a hit with all that was going on.  Then, the weekend hit and I was able to make up some lost ground.  I had a nice quiet weekend that I was able to devote a good chunk of reading to, and I took advantage of it.  With all of this in mind, I leave you with my final statistics for the week.

Total Pages Read:  788 pages
Total Minutes Listened:  186 minutes
Books Completed:  4
  1. Worthy by Catherine Ryan Hyde
  2. Fables #19:  Snow White by Bill Willingham
  3. Fables #20:  Camelot by Bill Willingham
  4. Ms. Marvel #2:  Generation Why by G. Willow Wilson

As for my plans for the coming week . . . I hope to get in more good reading with the start of a new book this evening -- The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd.  However, most importantly, I hope to get in more writing time.  I was doing really well there for a bit, but it has taken a major hit again and I feel like I'm back to square one again.  Here's to a great reading AND writing week!

Did you participate in Bout of Books?  How did you do?  What's on your schedule for this week?
