Bout of Books 14: Days 2 & 3 Progress

image

Unfortunately, I didn’t meet all of my goals for Day 2 simply due to time constraints.  I’m trying not to beat myself up over it though, because the motto of the week is “flailing, not failing.”  Even though Day 2 came to a bit of a disappointing end, I’m determined to try that much harder for the remainder of the week!

Day 3, on the other hand, was much more successful – I managed to meet all of my goals, and I finished my final summer reading book for school!

My Goals

  • To devotote a minimum of 3 hours (180 minutes) to reading each day
  • To read 300 pages per day (2100 pages total)
  • To finish a total of 6 books
  • To participate in at least one Twitter discussion
  • To visit three participating blogs each day

I am a senior in high school and an avid reader/reviewer, horseback rider, and graphic designer.  Since a young age, I have fostered a love of reading, beginning with my forays into the Nancy Drew series.  I’ve branched out significantly in my reading tastes since then, and my favorite genres include young adult, romance, mystery, and thriller.  I’m constantly trying to expand my horizons, however, so I do dabble in other genres.  While I’m not reading, I volunteer at a hippotherapy center and a veterinary clinic, practice agility with my dogs, play piano, and sketch.
