Bout of Books 12 Wrap-Up
My first Bout of Books Read-A-Thon is finished and I am happy with my reading. I got 3 books read this last week and one of them was over 300 pages.
I read Number Seventeen by Louis Tracy a 1915 murder mystery, Common or Garden Crime by Irish author Sheila Pim (published in 1945) and last but not least The Vital Spark by Scottish author Neil Munro (published in 1906). Click on the links if you want to read my report on these books.
I had a great time joining in a few of the challenges. Two I posted here on the blog and one I did through Instagram, something new to me!...
Top Ten Book Recommendations @Trees of Reverie. Thanks to Sarah for being such a wonderful host of a fun challenge. I won this one! I have two Peter May books (The Lewis Man & Entry Island) winging their way to me as we speak!
Bookshelf Scavenger Hunt was hosted by Stefani @Caught Read Handed was a fun hunt through my shelves!
Literary Quote Challenge @Gone With the Words was to post a pic of a quote from one of your books and I chose to do it through Instragram, click here to see the pic! the quote was:
'Family life often makes it difficult to indulge one's personal impulses of benevolence'. Lucy Bex speaking in Common or Garden Crime.
I did a little of the socializing through Twitter but on the whole I am not a very good Tweeter:( I'm really just on it to see the pics of James Oswald's farm animals;)
It was fun and I would do it again. Maybe next time one of you will join me!?
