Bout of Books 10.0

I may be crazy but I’m participating in the Bout of Books read-a-thon next week. In case you don’t know about it, here’s the scoop.

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 12th and runs through Sunday, May 18th 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 10 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team

So I’ve got a few goals I’ve put together for the 7 days of the read-a-thon.

  • Read every day
  • Read at least 1500 pages (more than 200 pages a day)
  • Read 5 books
  • Complete at least 5 challenges

 

 

Books to be Read

I’m focusing on more short, quick reads for this read-a-thon so I don’t overwhelm myself but I am able to read a good number of books that I already own.
