Finished: The Coffee Legacy by Katharina Bordet, which I’ll be reviewing sometime this week, The House of Spirits by Isabel Allende, which I reviewed on Saturday, The Sparrow by Mary Doria Russell, which I’ll be reviewing at some point in the future when I’ve processed all the emotions, and The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams, which I read for fun.

Challenges:

  • Once Upon a Time IX Progress: 5 out of 5. All I have left is to read “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” by Shakespeare.
  • Show Your Shelves Some Love Progress: 18 out of 51.
  • Outdo Yourself Progress: 30 out of 66.
  • Netgalley/Edelweiss Progress: 9 out of 50.
  • SF/F BingoUnless I figure out a new way of rearranging the books I’ve already read, Journey to the Underhill Gates and The Thrones of Fire and Stone by P.J. Owen, as wells as The Coffee Legacy, don’t fit on any of the remaining squares.  I put The Sparrow on the “Space Travel” square and The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy on the “Humourous SF/F” square.

Total pages read for the week: 516 pages and the remaining 34% of The Coffee Legacy.

Total # of books for the year: 31.  Despite two Finals at the beginning of the week, I finished a lot of the books I had been reading for awhile, and I owe it all to Bout of Books 13.

Last Monday, I was supposed to tell all of you the poll results for if I would be allowed to buy The Outlandish Companion, Vol. 2 by Diana Gabaldon, but in my excitement for Bout of Books, I forgot.  I’ll be buying the book as soon as I’ve raised enough money from books I’ll be selling to the used bookstore since only one person voted “nay” and everyone else voted “aye”!  I’ll be posting an update on how much money I’ve saved up in my #ShelfLove posts every month until I’ve earned enough to buy the book.  Thank you, to all of you who voted in the poll!
