Thoughts: Well I guess it was inevitable after being happy with what I read yesterday that today I would have a bit of a lull! I wanted to read 200 pages but I think I can make it up tomorrow. Although I think my 5 book challenge make be a little on the tight side - half way through the week and just under half way through my book list. But I guess we'll see.

Thoughts: 
Happy with what I read today. Still going to be tight to fit two books in over the weekend up I'm over the moon that I've read as much as I have, really put a dent in my review pile. Also the challenge today was really fun - even if it did mean messing up one of my bookshelves. If I could put up with not have a series together I think I'd have my books in rainbow order in future... unfortunately I can't. Mild OCD when it comes to my books. On to DAY 6! Can't believe the weeks almost over!

Thoughts: AH! That's it! Can't believe this week has gone by SO fast it's unreal. I also can't quite believe I managed to finish ALL five of the books I set for the week. I think that's an all new record. Super happy and this as really fun! Can't wait for the next one. Thanks Bout of Books for the epic read-a-thon.
