Bout of Books 9.0 Update #1 and Book Buying Spree Challenge

Hope you're doing well,my fellow participants ,

Please note that all read-a-thon posts are likely to be posted a day late.
Update #1
Yesterday I managed to complete Nancy Drew Files #45 - Out of Bounds.It exceeded my expectations as it turned out to be the third best (Perfect Plot and High Risk are better) Nancy Drew Files book that I've read so far. Overall I'd rate it 3.5 out of 5 stars because it was unpredictable and action-packed.

I had already read 55 pages of the book before the read-a-thon therefore my total for day one was a disappointing 97 pages. I hope to do better today by completing Babysitter's Club #39 - Poor Malllory ! by Ann M. Martin - before and during school I managed to get to page 21 out of  137.
