#TheReadingQuest I am a BARD! [UPDATED

As I have only read 7 of these year’s 24 book goal I have decided to be part of #TheReadingQuest that will run from Sunday 13th August to Sunday 10th September, 2017. This is basically like playing a quest videogame. It is hosted by  Aentee’s (Read At Midnight) and the art for this quest was made possible by  CW of Read, Think, Ponder. Be sure to check it out if you are interested if you need some motivation to read more or you have a huge to read list! If you want to see the character I chose and the books I am reading keep reading! I will also be documenting my reading challenge on this post! If you decide to enter feel free to link to your post on the comments or send me a tweet. See bottom for update and how much I read on that month

Ok so I have decided the play a BARD!!! Now my bard needs a name

I always name my D&D or role playing characters as Lithel so that is settled! Let’s see the wonderful adventures she will follow!!! According to the challenge the bard’s description goes like this:

While the bards may not engage in direct combat, they make up for it with their intimate knowledge of songs and stories. They will travel through the Fifth Down path on the quest board, reading famed tales and singing lost songs.


So far I am only sure about one book (hey is 10:30 pm and I have been coding all day give me a break!) but will fill as soon as I can think of options. By the way how come every book I want to read is never available at the digital library? Amazon should give me points for how much money I spend on books a month!

Please join if you have the time and this seems like your kind of thing! I’m going to be super active on my twitter during this time so if you want more instant updates you can find me there (shameless plug), otherwise I’ll probably do weekly wrap-ups. I hope I can at least finish the bard quests and maybe move next to the rogue. I may even continue this challenge unofficially after it is done 🙂

So the month came and went and I can say that I read 3 books during the reading challenge!!! YAY ME:
