Bout of Books 15 - Goals and Progress



As usual, this post contains my goals and my progress during this Bout of Books. Let's see how it goes!

Goals

  • To read at least 2 hours a day
  • To read a minimum of 50 pages a day (yes, I am being that slow right now)


My Progress

Monday (Day 1)

Time devoted to reading: 20 minutes
Pages I've read today: 10 pages of Dune, by Frank Herbert
Total pages so far: 10 pages
Books finished: none
Notes: Not so good a start... I though I would have less work than I actually had, so I only managed to read a little bit before going to bed at night. Let's see if tomorrow's better.

Tuesday (Day 2)

Time devoted to reading: 20 minutes
Pages I've read today: 10 pages of Dune, by Frank Herbert
Total pages so far: 20 pages
Books finished: none
Notes: Oh well... This is a copy/paste from yesterday. And the frustrating thing is that I am really enjoying the book but I can't find time to read it. Damn!

Wednesday (Day 3)

Time devoted to reading: 40 minutes
Pages I've read today: 20 pages of Dune, by Frank Herbert
Total pages so far: 40 pages
Books finished: none
Notes: Oh man, nothing is going according to my plan... but that's life! At least something is happening (good and productive things, at least), and that's why I am having trouble in finding time to read. Right now, I just hope I can read more in the weekend.

Thursday (day 4)

Time devoted to reading: 20 minutes
Pages I've read today: 10 pages of Dune, by Frank Herbert
Total pages so far: 50 pages
Books finished: none
Notes: Oh well, nothing to see here... move along...

Friday (Day 5)

Time devoted to reading: none
Pages I've read today: none
Total pages so far: 50 pages
Books finished: none
Notes: This day was super productive and I got many things done... except my reading. I am not disapointed at all because although I'm not having that much time to read it seems like some things in my life are finally starting to happen, and I am really happy.

Saturday (Day 6)

Time devoted to reading: none
Pages I've read today: none
Total pages so far: 50 pages
Books finished: none
Notes: This read-a-thon is not going well. These past two days it is not going at all. At least I spent almost two hours on skype talking about books... Does it count?

Sunday (Day 7)

Time devoted to reading: 2 hours
Pages I've read today: 45 pages of Dune, by Frank Herbert
Total pages so far: 95 pages
Books finished: none
Notes: I managed to read two hours today. It was really good, considering the amount of time I read during the whole week.

Wrap-Up


Another Bout of Books has come and gone! And this one did not go as smoothly as the others. It was a tough week, with a lot of things to do, many distractions and not much time left to read. I didn't achieve any of my goals and there were two days when I didn't read at all. Oh well... Better times will come, I guess!
Here are the statistics:

Total time devoted to reading: 3 hours and 40 minutes. This was really weak... I honestly thought that I could read at least for an hour a day while comuting, but it just didn't happen.
Total pages read: 95 pages of Dune, by Frank Herbert. I am loving this book, but this week was really rough.
Total books finished: none

I hear you on long work days! I have been very productive at work, but not so much on reading. Can't wait until the weekend! Hope you have a good reading weekend!

Work has been consuming me! I arrive home in no mood to pick up a book. But I hope it changes a bit during the weekend!
