Bout of Books 11 Goals and Progress Updates

Bout of Books

I’m so super excited for Bout of Books 11 to start tomorrow! This is my goals post and I will be updating it with my progress throughout the week. If I get real ambitious I may do some additional posts with video updates but we shall see. :)

 

Time Devoted to Reading

I will be reading all week long and as much as humanly possible with four kids.

 

My Goals

  • I want to read 10 books during the week from the Tyndale Summer Reading Program. I have a large stack of them ready to read and on my kindle as well.
  • ETA on 8/19 – Put up at least one booktube video to get out of my slump. This will require figuring out a new video editing software.

Updates

Monday
Number of books I’ve read today: Didn’t finish any but worked on one a little bit

Books: Reading Life Support by Candace Calvert

Today was a bit difficult. I’m a Minecraft nerd and my friends and I started a new server with a new mod pack which has made it hard to focus on reading. But tomorrow is a new day and I will read more.

Books: Still reading Life Support by Candace Calvert

Today I homeschooled most of the day and then had to go to the doctor. I had to hurry home to try to feed the kids before Ben had his first football practice. We ended up eating leftover pizza and hurrying out the door so we could make it to the parent meeting. I was hoping to get some reading in at practice but I’m blessed to have three other Christian moms on the team and we sat and chatted. Once I got home I had a horrible headache and just went to sleep.  Tomorrow is a new day!

I didn’t get much done today as my headache was super bad by the time I had time to read. This headache is really getting in the way of bout of books.

My headache was worse today than it has been so far. But I found laying down and reading was the best way to deal with it so that’s what I did. Finally finished one book.
