Bout of Books 11

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 18th and runs through Sunday, August 24th 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 11 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team

Reading Time:

I actually have the week off, I thought I would be starting my new job but they’re still working on the building. So whenever I can I will read this week!

Goals:

  • Participate in at least 1 chat.
  • Try and do some of the challenges.
  • Comment on many blogs each day!
  • I have no book goal, just going to enjoy and read what I can.

Books to Read:

These are a few of the books I’d like to get through, but the list could change during the read-a-thon.

  • Omens by Kelley Armstrong-Done
  • Alpha by Rachel Vincent-Done
  • Visions by Kelley Armstrong-Started
  • Inferno Park by J.L. Bryan
  • Might also add some of my Manga that I want to re-read

    • I wish I was working so I could make more money, but I totally understand, that’s how I felt when I was working during this.
      Thanks, I hope you get to read lots too!

  1. Hello! Nice timing to get the week off for Bout of Books. Hope you get to start your new job soon, though. I’m only working 3 1/2 days this week, and have tomorrow and Thursday off – yay! Happy reading. 🙂

  2. Just taking things easy and reading whenever you feel like it– I LIKE THAT ATTITUDE 😀 I might have gotten a bit uptight with finishing goals and catching up on deadlines and stuff… Time to rewind a little! Enjoy the rest of your week!

    • Thank you 🙂 I used to stick close to goals but then I’d feel upset if I didn’t do them, so that’s why I switched and I like it better. I hope you have a relaxing rest of the week!

  3. Lucky – wish I had the week off to read more. Glad you’re having a good week! I’m hearing so much about that movie, I may need to go see it!

I love comments! Feel free to leave one, and if it doesn't show up right away don't worry, I just have to approve it.
