Bout of Books #2- Day 1

Yesterday was my first day of my second Bout of Books! Somehow I kind of forgot it was going on until this morning... no worries though! I still read a lot! :)

  • Book of Lost Tales part 2 by J.R.R. Tolkien- I read one chapter of it, which constituted about a quarter of the book (i.e. pretty long). It was great though! It was the story of Túrin, which is one of my favorites but incredibly tragic.
  • Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery (Re-read) (audiobook)- I listened to multiple chapters (I'm not sure how many). I'm about a third of the way through it and I realized I haven't met Gilbert Blythe yet! I didn't realize it took quite so long get to him. I was listening to this while doing dishes and cleaning the sink. It sure made the chores go by faster! 
  • Strawberry Girl by Lois Lenski- I started and finished this last night.... it took me about an hour and a half to zip through it. It was a Newberry award winner back in the day and I though it was pretty good. :) It was a cute story and a little reminiscent of Laura Ingalls Wilder's books. Reading it made me feel incredibly lazy... like I should go out and hoe the garden in 100 degree weather for a few hours. 

So all in all a great first day of Bout of Books, despite me forgetting it was happening. :) The joys of not having started the semester of school yet and having lots of time. :)

  1. Nicely done, Lois!
    luv that about audiobooks :)

  2. This is the second post I've seen from someone who forgot about the event between sign-up and the first day. As much as it would drive me nuts because I'm such a planner, it would be kind of fun to have a ninja read-along pop up out of nowhere.

  3. Adore Anne of Green Gables! Have fun reading this week!
