Bout of Books 26 – Day 1

Grab button for Bout of Books

Day 1 of Bout of Books is here! I’m so excited for this week of reading. I started preparing yesterday by making sure my two reading spots were clean and ready to go for reading time after work today. As I was doing so, I became curious about how other people like to read, if they have a special place in their home or if they prefer reading outside or in a coffee shop or library. So since my two spots were freshly tidied I thought I would share the two spots in my house that I do the majority of my reading.

The first spot is in my home library. I love to cozy up in this chair with a candle, a book, and a kitty or two. Nika looks like she is also excited for some quality reading time this week! In the cart next to my chair I have my candle and TBR all set to go. It’s a loose TBR so if I end up not feeling like reading any of those books during the week, I’m going to choose something new from my shelves. The one exception is my re-read of Nevernight. That will continue 100%. I will have a close-up of the TBR stack a little farther down in this post.

The second spot is in the living room. These couches are so comfortable and so are the pillows, especially the buffalo plaid ones. I also have a candle ready for this spot and my iPad to do some Goodreads updates. I anticipate spending most of the reading week down in my library but wanted to have this spot ready to go if I needed a little change.

Here is what I have for my loose TBR. I’m already in the middle of Nevernight re-read so I want to finish that one up before I choose any other book to read. I will be reading The Outsider as a buddy read with my friend Laura so this one will be probably read in small chunks. I wanted to read at least one graphic novel over the week so I chose two for my TBR to have some options.

  • Nevernight by Jay Kristoff
  • The Outsider by Stephen King
  • Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson
  • The Turn of the Key by Ruth Ware
  • Monstress: Awakening
  • Marvel’s 1602

Today’s challenge is to introduce yourself in 6 words so here goes…

Sassenach, introvert, Ravenclaw, goofy, animal lover.


Where do you like to read? How would you introduce yourself in 6 words? What are you reading this week?
