Impressions from the reading life

#boutofbooks 16 – Day 7

Bout of Books

It is the final day of the readathon! I had a ton of fun reading a wide variety of books.

 

I spent the last two hours doing house chores and listening to the audiobook of The Guermantes' Way, part three in the In Search of Lost Time cycle. While I enjoyed the latter, I'm still quite exhausted, so I decided to end the readathon week now and spend the evening watching Doctor Who and reading blogs ;)

 

So, without further ado, my totals:

I managed to finish 4 books and read 859 pages. Taking into consideration the chunk of Proust I listened to (250 pages worth of audio), I'm really happy with how the readathon went for me.

 

The books I read were:

Stranger in a strange land (which didn't exactly wow me),

Drifter Vol. 1 (a spontaneous and quick read that went a bit wrong, but hey),

Sorceress of Darshiva (a comfy return to teenage reading experiences),

Warren the 13th & the All-Seeing Eye (a gorgeously illustrated children's book), and the aforementioned

The Guermantes' Way (which made me almost forget I was ironing; thanks Proust!).
