Bout Of Books Day 1 Update: 5/14 Progress

Bout of Books Read-a-Thon
I finished off Death Masks (Dresden #5) by Jim Butcher today (which was fantastic!), and then read my first full Read-A-Thon book (which was good, but not fantastic). Looking forward to book number 2! 

Number of books read as of 5/14: 1
I can't say that this is one of my favorites of Austen's. It was very quick, and very short, and funny in an over-the-top way, but I find that I much prefer her subtlety. Considering how young she was when writing this though, it's pretty damn impressive.

"Run mad as often as you chuse; but do not faint--"

Words to live by. ;)

Books Read During Read-A-Thon: 1


  1. This is one of the few by Austen I haven't read. I will have to change that this year :)

  2. The only ones that I have left now are Sanditon, and The Watsons.

    I liked this one well enough, but I just thought it was over the top silly at times.

  3. I always have at least one book that slows me down or I didn't like as much as I thought I was going to. Good luck with the rest of your BoB picks!
