Bout of Books 14: Recap

Well, my internet picked the PERFECT week to completely shut down on me. Granted, that was partially my fault for letting my husband open the mail and “accidentally” misplace the internet bill to be forgotten until the internet company turned it off completely. I wasn’t the happiest camper when I found that out. It also didn’t help that we’ve smack dab in the middle of monsoon season, so it’s storming often and that shuts down our power every so often. All in all, not the best week to be on the computer for me.

As for my first read-a-thon, I’d say I did pretty well considering my lack of internet. I wasn’t able to really participate in the challenges the last couple of days, but I did post a pretty satisfying MASH game to my twitter.


Reading wise, I didn’t tackle much of my TBR list as was to be expected, but I pretty much read through the majority of the trade paperback comic books that I’ve been hoarding for a time to sit down and read through as many as possible. I love comics. Like a lot. And I really need to devote more time to reading them.
