Bout of Books- a readathon!

Wednesday, May 1, 2013

I'm so excited to be participating in Bout of Books again! If you remember, I did the last one back in January and it didn't work out so well for me with the timing of it. I didn't meet most of my goals.

I'm hoping for better luck this time!

What is 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 13th and runs through Sunday, May 19th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure, and the only reading competition is between you and your usual number of books read in a week. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 7.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team.

My goals for Bout of Books:
  • Read at least 150 pages each day
  • Finish 3 books
  • Participate in Twitter chats
  • Connect with new blog friends who love to read!

Books I'll be reading:
  • TBA- I'll decide when the time comes, depending on my mood :)

I'm super excited for this to start. I thought I'd been doing really well on my Goodreads goal for 2013, but I guess I'm still a little behind. Though I've been doing a ton of reading lately, they've all been very long books (Game of Thrones), so it just doesn't seem like I'm making a dent in my goal for this year. Hoping to knock out 3 books during the readathon and maybe that will get me up to speed.
