In this discussion, we'll do reading sprints of 5-30 mins.

If you want to start a reading sprint please use this format:

:(time you want to start) for (how long the sprint will be)

Example:
:30 for 15
This would mean that everyone who wants to sprint will start at the 30 mins of the hour and read for 15 mins, at :45 you can come back and update how much you've read.

Feel free to add "challenges" to your sprint!
Example:
:30 for 15 -Find a dog in your book
After the sprint it over, you can come back and update the challenge!

I've read 0% - 15% in Hateful Heroes

Wow it has been a while since I've read the previous two books. I'm happy that I haven't forgotten a single thing about what happened and I'm excited to see what happens next.


message 14: by BookWorm (new)

BookWorm | 1239 comments I read 16 pages, which sounds really stupid, but I tell you, these pages are huuuuge! I was reading Red Rising. I just started it a couple days ago so it's still boring right now.

LOL trust me I get it! I never even finished that series.

what do you have in mind?? I'm down for whatever


message 18: by BookWorm (new)

BookWorm | 1239 comments What I have in mind sounds really hard so we could read for 30 minutes instead. We could try to find something in our book that has happened to us in real life. For example, if the character's dog ran away, and it happened to you as well, that is something you could put. We could go :00 for 30, and When we find something, we could post it right away.

oh lord, lol, that would be hard to find something in my book that happened to me... but it does make it interesting.

Okay so :00 for 30 and something that happened to us?


message 20: by BookWorm (new)

BookWorm | 1239 comments Yep! Good luck!

15% - 48% of Hateful Heroes

23%: I mean, I don't know if this counts, but at this point in the book one of the main characters gets lost in their minds.. and I feel like that happens a lot with my life whether I'm at work or not.

hmm.. let's do 30 minutes. Should we do like a word find?


message 43: by Monica (new)

Monica (crystaltide44) | 35 comments sounds good!

Alaina (ameserole) | 51812 comments Mod
hmm okay, how about "test"?


message 45: by Monica (new)

Monica (crystaltide44) | 35 comments perfect! thanks for suggesting!


message 46: by Monica (last edited Apr 04, 2020 10:32AM) (new)

Monica (crystaltide44) | 35 comments So far I found "tests" page 59 and "test" page 60 and "testing" page 61 of King of Scars. Timely choice for "test" since the part I was reading was in a lab.

Alaina (ameserole) | 51812 comments Mod
ugh I haven't found it AT ALL. I found "greatest" lol which does have TEST in it but I feel like that's stretching it a bit.


message 48: by Alaina, Head of Monthly Challenges & Keeper of BR Threads (new)

Alaina (ameserole) | 51812 comments Mod
You'd think the word test would've already happened since they've mentioned taking blood samples in Sisters of the Perilous Heart but nope, nothing.


message 49: by Monica (new)

Monica (crystaltide44) | 35 comments Haha that was a good run though. I made it 25 pages.
