Bout of Books has come to an end and I have to say that this time around I was quite successful. As I mentioned, I managed to finish 2/4 of my goals, and with todays post (which I’m counting), I will have completed 3/4 goals. My last goal of visiting blogs and commenting was not as successful. I did visit other people’s blogs, but rarely commented. I really have to start taking more time to comment on other people’s blogs, especially since I know it takes a while to create a post.
