Bob12: Day 7 + sum up

And it's over. It was a bit of a wibbly wobbly experience for me this year, with blue days, and stormy days (the latter is not a metaphor) and distractions from Netflix and my desire to sleep forever.

Day 7:
Books finished: 1
Pages read: 353
Time spent reading: 5 hours
Social? Nah.

Finish my main current read (Råta by Siri Petterson): Done
Read 4 books (in addition to the one I'm finishing!): 2.5 books. So not done.
1 book has to be part of a series: Done, the first book I read was part of a series.
Read an average of 150 pages per day (1050 total): 1045 - Soooo close! I'm considering it done.
Read an average of 2 hours per day (14 total): Done: 16 hours
Communicate & update: daily blogs + tweets and comments + at least one challenge: Fail. 

Books completed:

Claire DeWitt and the City of the Dead by Sara Gran (affiliate link)
Råta by Siri Pettersen. (Goodreads link)
The Merciless by Danielle Vega (affiliate link)

Books begun:
The Bone Clocks by David Mitchell.
Succubus on Top by Richelle Mead.

I'm unhappy with my participation in fun social things, as well as my lack of reading on some days, but all in all I'm pleased. I've learned that time spent reading is perhaps the best goal (because trust me one page of a book =/= one page of another), and I chose a really slow, long book this week and that just kept me from hitting the other goals. I did kickstart my reading year though, and I'm really pleased with that. I'm already well underway. Now to tackle the challenges & goals I've set for the rest of the year!
