Bout of Books wrap up post

Another Bout of Books has come and gone. Hard to believe it has already been a week already - it flew by. It was fun and I am pretty pleased with my progress throughout.

I spent the day Sunday with Leaving Paradise by Simone Elkeles - start to finish it was an amazing book. I bawled like a baby too. Didn't do much with BoB aside from that, and I am totally okay with it because that book was awesome.

I had a great time this round of Bout of Books and even though I didn't get to spend as much time throughout the week reading, I feel like I made up for it yesterday. I'm glad I finished 3 books and pleased with myself for participating in 4 challenges. The challenges were fun, but my favorite was definitely the books in pictures.

So, how did you do with your Bout of Books readathon this time? If you didn't join in, did you see how much we had and decided you gotta join in next time? (pssst - it's May 11th - 17th) I know I can't wait for the next one!

Now, without further ado, let's recap....
