Bout of Books 10: Wrap-up Post

Bout of Books 10Bout of Books 10 Read-a-Thon is over.  I got more reading done than I expected to but less than I’d hoped to.  How’s that for positive thinking?  😉  All kidding aside, I’m pleased with my progress.  Reading a stack of shorter books really was the way to go for me, and I’ll probably use this method for read-a-thons from now on.

Here’s my final progress report:
