Bout of Books Read-a-thon 13: Day 3 Totals

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 11th and runs through Sunday, May 17th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 13 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team.

 For my third day of the Bout of Books Read-a-thon, I focused mostly on reading Treasures of the North by Tracie Peterson on my Kindle for PC. Normally it takes me longer to complete a book when I'm reading it on my laptop, so I decided to try to read as many pages as I could from there yesterday. For the first 2 days of the read-a-thon I was averaging about 30 pages from that book per day, but yesterday I managed to double that number. I'm quite happy with that progress, even if my physical book was set aside.

I also decided yesterday to add an audio book to my Currently Reading pile, this way I will be able to get some housework done while still making progress in my reading/listening. I downloaded Beachcombers by Nancy Thayer, from my public library and listened to about half an hour of it yesterday.

Yesterdays Bout of Books challenge was to write a haiku poem about the book you are reading. Follow the link to read the two poems I wrote based on characters from Mitch Albom's Have a Little Faith:
