I also started a book yesterday. I got a hold of a copy of Rosemary Clement-Moore's new book Spirit and Dust and read the first chapter--LOVING IT!!!
I also finished a chapter of Halfway to the Grave.
I haven't finished any whole books yet, but I am making progress on everything I am reading. Now if I could just stop picking up anything new until I finish these!
The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, May 13th and runs through Sunday, May 19th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure, and the only reading competition is between you and your usual number of books read in a week. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 7.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team
