Bout of Books 8.0 goals

It's time for Bout of Books 8.0! This is my 3rd time participating.
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, August 19th and runs through Sunday, August 25th 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 8.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team

My Bout of Books Goals
  • Read at least 100 pages per day
  • Finish the book I already started, plus 2 more
  • Participate in some Twitter chats
  • Try one challenge
  • Comment & connect with other book lovers

Books I'll be reading
  • Under The Dome by Stephen King
  • Obsidian by Jennifer L Armentrout
  • TBA (will probably depend on my mood!)
Once again, big thank you to my bloggy BFF Janie over at Fortune Favors for introducing me to Bout of Books, and the concept of online read-a-thons in general. I've really loved participating in these and it gives me a great excuse to catch up on my reading.

Have you ever participated in a read-a-thon before?
There's still time to sign up! :)

  4. You will be done with Obsidian in no time at all!!
    I hope I can read...I've had some horrible luck lately...I'll read like 10 minutes and then just give up. I can't concentrate :(

  5. I just finished Under the Dome this summer and loved it. A readathon is the perfect time to read it too! You should really get it done.

  6. Under the Dome took me a week to read all by itself. (Of course, I didn't have the push of a readathon either.) Good luck!
