Bout of Books 7.0 Goals and Updates

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

In case you missed my sign up post you can see it here, but this will be a more laid-back and stress free read-a-thon for me, so I can fully enjoy it! I will also only be re-reading the Women of the Otherworld series for this.

Time Devoted to Reading

During the bus rides to and from work, lunch hour and a few hours in the evening. The weekend I will be camping so who knows!

My Goals

  • Read as much as I want, without any pressure (no page or book count goal, but I will track it anyway)
  • Comment on as many blog posts as I can
  • Participate in at least one Twitter Chat

  • Stolen by Kelley Armstrong-557 pages (started at page 312)

    • Thanks! I didn’t want to stress myself out this time.
      Oh you definitely need to read them! I’ll have reviews for them up this summer if that helps 🙂

  1. Yay for no pressure!!! That’s what I went for last time! And I’m really jealous of the reading – in – the -bus thing! I did that for my entire time of school, but as I’m done now, I don’t take the bus anymore 🙂 Anyway, good look with your goals…I should start thinking about mine, too…

    • I still kind of wish I got a drive to work (its an hour by bus each way) but I’m making due with what I have, and reading makes it fly by!
      Thanks!
