Reading Tactics: A Bout of Books Mini-Challenge

BoB 9

 

The challenge is now over, and the randomly selected winner is Stephanie at Love.Life.Read! Congrats Stephanie! I will be emailing you soon.

 

Good morning all you Bout of Books-ers!

I’m hosting one of the Bout of Books Readathon challenges for today! It’s going to be pretty simple, because simple is good and also because I am a little lazy:

  1. You have to be participating in Bout of Books to be eligible to win the prize.
  2. What’s the prize, you may be wondering? A $20 Amazon gift card, or a book worth $20 from The Book Depository.
  3. Open internationally.
  4. This only lasts for 24 hours. I will close comments on this post at 1 AM Eastern time on January 7th.
  5. A winner will be randomly selected on Wednesday at some time. I’ll email the winner.

All you have to do is leave a comment below answering the following:

How do you fit in as much reading as possible during Bout of Books? How do you squeeze in those extra pages?

For example, I try to listen to more audiobooks, or read more at night instead of watching tv.

You just have to leave a comment answering the question in order to be entered for the prize, but if you want, you can choose to do this in one of your posts, on Instagram, on Twitter, on Youtube, whatever. Just leave a link to your answer in the comments so that I can see it!

Piece of cake, amirite? Now get commenting! I need your tips 🙂

  1. I really try not to have anything on TV that takes any attention. For example… right now I am watching I am Britney Jean (I love Britney!!). But I don’t actually have to pay too much attention. It’s too bad I can’t stand audio books or I would listen to them while I’m at the gym!!

  2. The only thing I do is actually resist all the temptations that I usually can’t. The TV stays off for most of the week, I stay far away from Youtube, I definitely don’t start playing games on the tablet, and so on.
    Sure, in the evening I may watch one movie with my boyfriend, but during Bout of Books, the TV isn’t constantly running in the background.
    Since I usually read more than one book (and usually one on audio), I may also listen to the audiobook and play silly browser games while the story is read to me. That’s if I absolutely can’t resist. 🙂
    But taking the time to sit down comfortably with a cup of cocoa or tea feels like a treat and I should definitely do it more often, not just during read-a-thons.

  3. If I could, I would have this week off work but alas, I dont!
    I have set myself up on the couch without a view of the TV (that’s a big distraction). My hubby bought me breakfast biscuits so I don’t have to worry about spilling cereal all over my book. Buy snacks before the readathon starts and if your really desperate for minutes, prepare frozen meals! I haven’t gone that far but every second night, hubby cooks 🙂

  4. Seems my first comment got eaten by WordPress as I couldn’t recall my password. Anyway what I said was that I do usually have afternoons for reading after lunch but this week I am setting aside some time in the mornings and also keeping my Kindle to hand at night in case I wake early – so rather than put telly box on in morning – read a bit instead.

  5. After finishing much of my homework, I usually start reading around six o’clock in the evening at my timezone. Of course this is a busy school-and-reading week for me, but I planned to wake up early every day this week in order to add more pages into my read-a-thon progress. If you meant by reading an extra more number of pages, I usually write mini notes of what I remember in the chapter and stick it in my book like a bookmark; something I do to go faster through a book without skimming. And then there’s my midnight snack and everything is perfect! c:

  6. Well considering boutofbooks is finally taking place during my break, I have a lot of times on my hand so I just read whenever I can. I usually don’t get distracted, so if I am sucked into a book, there is no way of getting me out. I do occasionally take a break here and there whether it is to go use the restroom, eat, or just work on my novel.

  7. I don’t have much time during the day because I spend time with my family and my boyfriend and we have to renovate but I read until 2 am and only sleep a couple of hours and then I start reading again until breakfast. 🙂
    But I have the book I am currently reading always with me , so I can read while waiting for the bus or in the car.
    Sometimes I read secretly at work when there is nothing to do. And so far I keep the pace. 😀

  8. Fortunately I have only two days of class this week so I already have a lot of free time. But I also set myself a goal to read even more than I would usually do. Getting rid of all those distraction like Twitter or the Internet in general is a good start to do that. I planned on turning of my computer and phone every night at 8pm and just read for the rest of the day (with not having to get up early I can read at least 4-5 hours). I also set myself an alarm to not sleep in too long and stay in bed then and read for some time.

  9. I do a lot of reading before bed. I also try to avoid TV, especially if there is nothing on and I could easily be reading instead. My computer is probably my worst distraction, so I find ‘out of sight out of mind’ seems to work with that issue.
    I also find it easier to be antisocial when I am trying to get a lot of reading done, so locking myself in my room with snacks other supplies makes it easier to get more reading done.
    And just looking at the TBR pile and the books I want to get to is another great incentive.

  10. I think the easiest way is to replace some other leisurely activities with reading (watching TV; or movies, browsing the Internet). I read while I eat, and since I work from home, it’s not a problem for me to sneak in some random reading moments at home time to time depending on how much work I have. Reading right after waking up and before going to bed is also a good idea.

  11. I’m making sure the only thing I do after work is read; I do all my jobs in the mornings. This morning I got a flat battery on my car though, so I guess I will be doing something different after work today! Audiobooks are great when you’re feeling tired and want to close your eyes – I just have to be carefully not to fall asleep. Also, my current book lived in my handbag, so it’s always around. 🙂

  13. It’s not very easy for me to squeeze in extra reading time during Bout of Books because I’m usually working during it, but I do try to read during my lunch hour and I also read more at night instead of watching tv. Also I’ve realized I read faster on my kindle so I try to pick ebooks to read during Bout of Books.

  14. The plan was to read a bit more instead of getting lost on the interwebs, but I ended up being written off sick by my doctor for the week, so I sort of feel like I’m cheating. I will still have to watch that getting lost on the interwebs thing, though, or there may still be little reading done. Perhaps I ought to up my goals a bit…

  15. I LOVE reading..but I also love my video games and Second Life too. What I do is as soon as I wake up in the morning I load up Secondlife and the Bout of Books blog at the same time, so it’s there staring at me lol. I feed my cats or whatever on SL, send my avatar to a fishing match, usually 45 mins long, and whilst she is fishing those are my reading sprint times and I do lots of them. The more fishing matches my avatar does, the more reading I get done..and it works brilliantly for me!

  16. Luckily, this is my last week of winter break before grad classes start again so I am completely focused on reading what I want as much as I can! I want to put a noticeable dent in my TBR bookcase before I must ignore it for months and read textbooks instead. So, to that end – I work part time which gives me some time during the day to read (instead of, you know, cleaning and such) and definitely no TV at night – its all about reading this week!

  17. I keep my book with me 24-7 during the read-a-thon (which isn’t much different than when I’m not read-a-thoning). However, I pick it up whenever there is a lull in the action at my house, I read during lunch and read the entire night away. If I have important t.v. to watch, I mute every commercial and read during those – which is surprisingly a lot of reading time. I will also consider downloading a book to run with whereas I usually listen to music when I run. I find the read-a-thon a great time to re-commit to my reading passion.

  20. There’s a couple of things I have banned this week, most importantly TV/DVDs and my laptop. I only check bout of books updates and then get the hell away from Tumblr and co. Whenever I leave the house, I make sure I have my book with me so that I can make the best of the time on the bus etc. I also unabashedly banned most of my friends, I am cruel. But at the end of the day, I really enjoy this week so much because I never get to spend as much time on books as I would like in daily life, so I’m always happy to make sacrifices during these shenanigans.

  22. For those suddenly busy days, I read while waiting for food to fry or water to boil. Stand back from the stove just far enough so no fire possible, can still keep an eye on whatever I’m cooking at the time as well, and a quick flick of a bookmark and I can turn full attention to food if need be (stirring, water over-boil prevention, ect.)

    As long as I can keep both within my view, cooking and reading at the same time is pretty easy.

    Also read during TV commercials, when waiting on replies from people over IMs or as a reward for finishing household chores.

  27. I thought about the thing that gets in the way of me being able to read more and here it is: the Internet! I already read in public transport everyday, but at night, when my toddler is already asleep, I tend to dive in the big black hole that is the internet, and end up reading less that I could. So, this week, I’m trying to build the habit of reducing the internet surfing at night and devote that time to books instead.

  28. I don’t watch any TV and limit my computer time. I listen to audiobooks in the car and while exercising. Any housework that I do, I make sure I’m listening to an audiobook. Although that has been something I’ve been doing for a few months now and my book count has gone up a lot.

  29. I sacrifice sleep! Most of my reading is done after my kids go to sleep, so I push my bedtime back a little bit to get all my reading done. I’ll catch up on sleep next week. 🙂

  30. Well, my original tactics were to spend lunch and a period of time after the kids were in bed to read I also was going to basically carry a book around with me all day so that I could catch the odd moments to read. Like last night I read while I cooked dinner rather than watching something on Netflix or listening to a radio story like Ruby the Galactic Gumshoe – which is rather harder to do so I had to plan out dinner more carefully (seasoned tilapia with parmesan mashed potatoes and green beans – all of which I could managed one handed after the veggies were all prepared). Not sure I can do that again tonight – I will have to see.

    However – we got hit with a blizzard watch, travel advisory and things started closing like dominoes yesterday – so I ended up staying home waiting for the kids to get back from school and reading. I also ended up getting woken up by the howling wind and spent a couple of hours reading an ebook in the dark until I relaxed enough to sleep. Made for a weird first day. Today everyone is home – so I have no idea if I will get much reading done at all.

  31. Oh – at work I almost always carry around something that I am reading. It would usually be a textbook or journal article but for this week I was going to allow myself to carry around a fun read instead. So now I am stuck at home and panicking about the fact that I am not getting any pre-semester reading done so far this week.

    BTW – did you ever get around to watching the movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s?

  37. Okay Sarah, I will tell you all my secrets! Here’s a quick 5 point plan:

    1) You gotta have a great variety of books. I pick a mix of ones that are short (so I can finish them quickly to build reading momentum) as well as long, but the long ones have to be page turners so I won’t notice the length. Then maybe I squeeze in another book that I read a little bit of throughout the entire readathon but can take breaks from.
    2) Have plenty of brain breaks and distractions. Trying to do only reading will lead to burnout. So take time to watch movies, have fun, relax, play games, go for a walk, etc.
    3) Have a book with you at ALL times! No matter where you are, you never know if you might be able to squeeze in a few minutes/pages of reading. It adds up! So, watching a TV show/movie? Keep a book nearby, you (or your BF) might have to pause it for some reason, and then you can read while you wait for him to make tea/use the bathroom, etc.
    4) Cut out all unnecessary distractions. While some planned (and short) distractions are good to give you a break, don’t do the ones that tend to get you sucked in and waste time. For example: surfing the internet, cleaning the house, cooking…haha Seriously, these things can wait until after the readathon!
    5) Take a bit of time to get online with other readathoners. They will motivate you and make the readathon so much more fun. And after chatting with them and hearing about all the reading they’ve done, you’ll want to immediately get off the computer/Twitter and run and read!

    Hope those tips help! Or at the very least were somewhat entertaining. 🙂 Hope you’re having a fabulous Day 2 and thanks for the sweet challenge!

  39. 1.) Always have a book with you! I’m not someone who usually does this, but I try to get some reading done while making/drinking coffee and anything else that I can do one-handed for readathons.
    2.) Talk with other people participating in the readathon. It’s not supposed to be competition, but for me at least, IT’S ALWAYS A COMPETITION. In my mind.
    3.) Quit a book if your noticing that you’re not really interested in it. You can always come back to it after the readathon if you have a need for finishing every book you start.

  40. I become a ROBOT in disguise and truck on through the weary dark days of this so called life. Just kidding! I work full-time so it’s def a challenge to keep up with other readers out there. Last year I participated in a challenging race called Tough Mudder. I used to wake up in the dreary days in the morning to work out and after work go on runs. I had to push myself to do more than I told myself I could. So, I decided that I’d do the same with this week. I mean its only a week compared to a whole year of training for this ridiculous tough mudder. =P I wake up early (Like 2 hours before work) and read as much as I can squeeze my little head in. I work 8 hours every day Monday-Friday. So during lunch I also squeeze in some reading time. I also work in a cube…so I like to squeeze in a few pages here and there…..BUT SHHHHHHHHHHHH! Hehehe >.<

    When I get home from work, I do my usual "getting home from work duties." Then I read through out the night til like 1-2 in the morning. Now this is crazy for me because my bedtime is usually at like 10pm. -___-

  41. Here are the things I do to fit in more reading!
    1. Order a huge snow storm to close my place of work and snow me into my house (this is actually the case for me at the moment)
    2. I start myself out with a small amount of books to read within the week, for instance, I’ve only picked out three books for this read-a-thon.
    3. I give myself breaks from reading whenever I feel like taking a break. I never try and force myself to continue reading when I don’t want to continue reading!
    4. During reading breaks I try to do something productive so I don’t feel like I’ve been lazy all day. I do this dishes during one break, start a load of laundry during another, vacuum the floors during the next break. It makes me feel accomplished at the end of the day when I realize I’ve read a ton and cleaned my house!
    5. I also give myself time to do something fun! I love watching booktube videos and playing Sudoku puzzles. Watching other booktubers inspires me to read, and I can only play so many Sudoku puzzles before I want to start reading again. It’s a win win!
    6. I read when I’m taking a bath, when I would be watching tv, before bed. Pretty much constantly!

  45. Lucky for me, this read-a-thon falls during my last week of winter break and it is freezing cold outside so I don’t have much going on. However, I set a pretty steep goal for myself. In order to meet it, I’m trying to get some reading in throughout the day, but most of my reading has happened at night. I’ll go to bed a little earlier than normal and read until I can’t read anymore. I’m going to need to fix my sleep schedule when I’m done, but I think it’s worth it. And, unlike the last read-a-thon, I am trying to watch less TV. I got sucked into a Buffy marathon during the last one – great show, but didn’t help my reading.

  51. Usually I wake up way before my alarm goes off, but I smile and roll over to fall back to sleep. I don’t know why my body clock insists on doing this all the time. Maybe, it likes the satisfaction of getting 2 sleeps for the price of 1?

    Either way, when it comes to doing readathons, I get up as soon as consciousness graces me with its presence, no matter how groggy I feel.

    I also tend to drink lots of coffee… that helps too.

    Another tactic I use, is to read multiple books at once. I set myself targets for each one for the day, such as 12 chapters out of this book, 20 out of that one. This way I have broken these big tomes up into bite size chunks. I don’t feel overwhelmed, and at the end of the day when I count up the pages I am amazed!!!

  52. It’s hard because I still work full time and have all the normal life things going on. I get extra reading time in by spending less time on my usual online activities such as twitter, Bejeweld and Candy Crush, etc. I also have an agreement with The Hubster that when I’m doing what he calls “that reading thing your doing this week” that I get to read until 7pm before he turns on the TV or expects me to be chatty after he gets home from work and his workout. That gives me a nice chunk of reading time after I get home from work.

    The timing worked out well this time because on Sunday The Hubster will be gone most of the day (to a college basketball game with the guys) so that works out great for me. We’ll get the weekly shopping and errands done on Saturday so I can have all day Sunday to myself and my books.

I make a list of books that I think will fit, normally my upcoming reviews list and have them all downloaded to my kindle or in a pile on my desk, ready for when I need them! Plus this way if a book isn’t working for me I can easily switch to another! I talk to the hubby and tell him the dates so we’re organized ahead of time with shopping, dinners, cleaning, etc. Our time together is at night but during read a thons he knows that unless I need a break I’m going to be reading my ass off! He helps by making dinner and letting me have the time to read. 🙂

I know if I start stressing out I won’t be able to read. Second I have a book with me all the time. Instead of listening to music in my free time I read. Even if it’s just a couple of pages it adds up. So I read at work, at uni, in the car, while waiting for someone or something. And I read a lot a night because that’s when I have time. So I would say try to find an hour or two during the day that you know you could spare and read, read, read. Hope it was helpful. This is my second read-a-thon so I am in no way an expert but that’s what works for me!

  66. In the morning, I never have any time to read (because I need to go to school immediately), but when I get home, I take a mug filled with milk and some cookies and I just lie down on my book and start reading, until my mom gets home (an hour later). Then I quickly make my homework, try to stay of Tumblr (that’s the most difficult part) and read some more. I also try to read on the bus when I get back from school, but that isn’t always possible… I think I’m doing okay so far, I’ve read 200 pages on the first day 🙂

  67. The way I try to get as much reading in as possible is that I read as soon as I wake up in the morning in bed! This way I am not distracted by the tv or any other thing that could possibly distract me! Another way is that I keep telling myself it is a competition against myself. This helps me continue to push myself to see how much I can actually read!

  68. How funny, I’ve been asked this question myself since I work full time and I have four kids. I get my reading time mostly at night, after the kids’ bedtime. Also, when it’s slow at work, I squeeze in some time or during my hour lunch break. The kids love going to the library, so what better place to read while the kids run around the library? Audiobooks are good too, while I do other things. Thanks for hosting this challenge! 🙂

I hate being away from him, but I find if the TV is on, I’ll glance up and watch bits and pieces while I read. So during BoB, I just separate myself completely.

    I do have a second job and I have constant dance rehearsal, but my second job is flexible. However, my dancing does take a lot of my attention. So it’s sometimes hard to stay focused in my reading because of dance. I have to trick myself though to get reading done. I tell myself that dancing is a reward I get for reading a certain number of chapters. It’s working so far.

One is to set aside at LEAST 1-2 hours just for reading every day AND to make the most of the inbetween moments elsewhere during the day. The inbetween moments being things like, making the coffee in the morning, lunches and dinners, waiting in the car during the carpool breaks, and listening to the audios in the car while driving.

I read on my lunch breaks, for an hour after work, and 30-45 minutes before bed. I live in a town full of trains, so whenever I have to wait on one, I read a book. My sweetie watches lots of golf and football. Me, I read.

  143. I’m still in school, so I try to read whenever I get done with an assignment. I also read in the afternoon. I get home pretty early (around 2pm), so if I don’t have much homework, I can usually read a book a day if I make the time. One of the main things that keep me from reading is how tired I am. When I get home, there are many times when I have trouble keeping my eyes open, so I usually take naps that can last from 2 – 4 hours, depending on how tired I am. I only get around 4 hours of sleep a night, so these naps are like gold.

  144. I try to grab any minute that I can to read during the week. Audiobooks are great because I can still be productive around the house and get reading done. I also trying to bring a book everywhere I go!

  145. I personally read on my lunches and before bed but I also do audio books all day long at work. Nothing other than that. I don’t ever meet my starting goals but I will always try.

  146. I don’t have a lot of time because of a busy schedule, but I set aside an hour to do nothing other than read. I listen to music I’ve heard over and over so I don’t get distracted by the unfamiliar. I try to read in an empty room so no one will try to talk to me. If I start to feel distracted, I remind myself that watching videos can be a reward for enduring.

  147. I’m listening to an audiobook on my commute to and from work and squeezing in reading when I’m not at work. I try to get in as many pages as possible before bed and first thing in the morning. I’ll reward myself by setting page number goals (for example, I’ll get to watch an episode of a show I’m currently obsessed with).

  148. I listen to audio books in the car on the way to and from work. I also have another job and I’ll listen to a book on my ipod. I read at my break times (lunch and afternoon tea). I have another audio book which I’ll listen to while I’m cooking, washing up, folding clothes. And I always carry my book with me, you never know where you might get some extra reading done – like waiting in the Drs. office this morning 🙂

  149. I try to squeeze in some reading whenever I have extra time – before work, during my lunch break, and in the evenings before bed. I rely on the weekend a LOT for most of my binge reading, in order to meet my goals.
