I never in a million years would have set a goal to read 1000 pages in a week and can't believe I actually did anyway! The majority of those pages were graphic novels and children's poetry, but that number is still pretty mind-blowing to me. I'm a slow reader who usually reads about a book a week, if I'm lucky. This event has made me more conscious of the extra time I have in a day to read if I really want to. I'm really hoping to carry over new habits I started during Bout of Books into regular life. All I really did differently this week was take advantage of an extra half an hour here or there to read -- first thing in the morning, on my lunch break, etc. It has completely amazed me how much the time adds up when I am not just reading at bedtime. It's been a revelation!
