Not only did I finish A Knot in the Grain by Robin McKinley, but I also finished Clever Girl Finance: Grow Your Money by Bola Sokunbi. I read slightly less than I did during the last Bout of Books, but I finished the same number of books. All in all, this was a great readathon, and I hope I can keep this momentum going!

I only managed to finish one story and then start another one from A Knot in the Grain by Robin McKinley. The Boyfriend and I were out all day shopping for a washer and dryer and a dishwasher. I also wasn’t feeling well and took a nap before dinner so I didn’t read anything until shortly before I went to sleep. All I have to do today is a couple of chores so I’m hoping to finish A Knot in the Grain and hit my goal for this readathon.

I only managed to read part of a story from A Knot in the Grain by Robin McKinley, but I did listen to quite a bit of Andrea Vernon and the Corporation for Ultrahuman Protection by Alexander C. Kane. I gave up on The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas because it was due back to the library by today, and there was no way I was going to finish it in time. When I tried to renew it, I found out there are 3 other people waiting to get it so renewing wasn’t an option. Oh well, maybe I’ll try again someday.

I didn’t read much at all. I only managed to finish another story from A Knot in the Grain by Robin McKinley, and listen to some more of The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas, and that’s it. Hopefully I will have more time to read today.

I finished The Stepsister Scheme by Jim C. Hines then jumped right into A Knot in the Grain by Robin McKinley. It’s a small collection of short stories, and I finished the first one, “The Healer,” before I went to bed. My plan for today is to listen to some more of The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas while I’m running some errands, and finish at least one more of the short stories.

I listened to a little bit of The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas while running errands, and then I dived into The Stepsister Scheme by Jim C. Hines hoping I might get close to finishing it. I got a little past 80%, so my plan is to finish it today, and then start A Knot in the Grain by Robin McKinley.

I’m well over halfway through Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine. I also started and got caught up on The Year of Cozy by Adrianna Adarme. It goes month by month and my plan is to read each month as it comes. So, I won’t be reading any more of it during this last day of Bout of Books, but I am going to try to finish Ink and Bone.
