Bout of Books 16: Challenge #2 & Day 1 Reading Updates

Bout of Books
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
Alright guys! We've made it to day two of the readathon! For me, this was a feat to be achieved.  Of course, the morning Bout of Books started, my little one woke up with a stomach bug and I spent the day cleaning up puke, running down to the hotel laundry room to do laundry and basically just doing whatever I needed to do for my little sicko. Since the day she was born, if she isn't feeling well, she's a daddy's girl. But not yesterday. Her tummy was messed up, she was tired all day, she had a fever, and all she wanted was mommy.  If I left her side for a second she started crying.  So it's safe to say that my reading updates for day one (at the end of this post) won't be very impressive.  Hopefully today will make up for it!

Show Off Your Shelves Photo Challenge
Share a picture of your books/shelves/nightstand/e-library/wherever you keep your books on Twitter, Instagram, or on this post. Use the hashtags #boutofbooks and #shelfie4boutofbooks
So here are my "shelves"!
These bags aren't technically shelves but we're out of town right now and in a hotel suite so I have very limited space. Usually the books are at least stacked nicely in the bags but my 2 year olds keeps going through them. 😜 She loves books just like her momma.
