Bout of Books 17: Day 5 Progress

Bout of Books

The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, August 22nd and runs through Sunday, August 28th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 17 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team

I listened to some of Chapter and Hearse by Lorna Barrett during my commute to and from work and I finished How to Be a Heroine by Samantha Ellis.  I also decided to use my Friday night (when the Boyfriend has his game night) to go through my shelves and read/skim through a whole stack of books that were very important to me during my 20s but were probably no longer useful to me now.  As a result, I have no idea how long I read, but there are now ten more books in the box that will go to the used bookstore when it’s full.  I think I’m done with culling my shelves in large chunks, and I’ll only be adding to the box as I finish books from my TBR that I don’t want to keep.  At least for a couple more years.  I wonder how many more books will I outgrow during my life?
