Bout of Books 9.0: Monday

Bout of Books has started! How exciting is that? Very exciting.
My first day was somewhat of a weird reading day, as the weekend getaway to Estonia resulted in a small chaos in my blog reader (300 posts). So mainly I was reading blog posts yesterday, but I actually also managed to finish a book - though not one from my pile, but the book I had started before the readathon.
The books I read on Monday: Tolstoy and the Purple Chair by Nina Sankovich
Pages read on Monday: 82
Books finished: 1
What do my cats think about the books at hand: Robert thought nothing of Tolstoy and the Purple Chair - it is a fairly slim book and it is not a hardcover. Maybe he will be more attracted to Dead Souls, a very old hardcover that I own.
Flavour of the day: Christmas candy, some pies made by mum, cheese curds, smoothies, probably something more - it was a catastrophe (I always am amazed at how much food exactly we are capable of dragging home from Estonia...)


  1. Yay, Bout of Books! That's very exciting you have finished a book already. According to my kindle, I have 8 minutes left of my book but now I am at work (sneakily looking at blogs) so I cannot read it! Lunchtime could not come quick enough. Loving your added extras about cats and food in this post :D Hope Tuesday is going well for you.

    1. I know you have finished a book too by now! Yay :) Thanks for words of encouragement, I am actually getting a lot of reading done thanks to the readathon - just the kick in the bum that I needed :)


Leave a comment if you feel like it - it warms my little bookish heart. :)
