[Desafiam] Bout of Books 16 - Day 4

Carla B.

Bout of Books


  • Time devoted to reading: about 2 hours.
  • Pages read: 56 pages of the Portuguese translation of North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell.
  • Notes: About half of that reading time was due to waking up in the middle of the night and having trouble getting back to sleep. After 30 minutes of tossing and turning I just picked up a book and started reading. The rest of the reading time was done after dinner, but since I hadn't sleep well the night before I fell asleep earlier than usual.
  • Challenge: If You Like This, Try This. I shared my recommendation.

  • Time devoted to reading: about 1 hour.
  • Pages read: 30 pages from the Portuguese translation of North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell.
  • Notes: I started reading at midnight, to really kick off this read-a-thon, and only read for about one hour. The day was then spent working and the evening watching and reading reviews on the latest "Game of Thrones" episode.
  • Challenge: Introduce Yourself #insixwords. And here is the link to my introduction.

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 9th and runs through Sunday, May 15th 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 16 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team

Ok, I wasn't thinking on participating in the bout of books in an official manner, but then failure is already guaranteed so I might as well have fun.



  • read everyday,
  • participate in at least two challenges.

I will be happy if I finish the book I just started, the Portuguese translation of North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell, but I just really want to pick up and read everyday, even if only a page. Also, I already read the English version but it's the first time it was translated into Portuguese and I really miss the story and the characters so it will be nice to re-read it.




Ok, não estava a pensar participar de forma oficial mas que se lixe, tal como no ano passado o falhanço está garantido!



  • ler todos os dias,
  • participar em pelo menos dois desafios.

Ficarei bastante satisfeita se conseguir terminar o livro que comecei, Norte e Sul da Elizabeth Gaskell, mas quero mesmo é ler todos os dias, mesmo que só uma página. Já li este livro em inglês, mas tenho saudades da história e das personagens, pelo que já o contava reler mas sabe ainda melhor fazê-lo com a primeira tradução para português do livro.
