This is my third time participating in Bout of Books, and I’m really excited to get started. I’m hoping the discipline it takes to do Bout of Books will somehow transfer over and mean I get back into a reading schedule for the blog. This is probably a long shot…but you’ve got to hope.
Because I seem to be in a bit of a fluttery mood, my goals for Bout of Books aren’t going to be particularly concrete – it would be nice to say “I WILL read ONE book a day”, but frankly I can’t see it happening and that would just de-motivate me. Not a good idea.
If you are thinking about taking part (there’s still time to sign-up) then click on the image above to find out more.
So without further ado, here are my goals for Bout of Books 10.
Time Devoted To Reading… I’m going to try to devote at least 2 hours a day to reading. Hopefully more than 2 hours, but I don’t think 2 hours is an unreasonable expectation on my part.
My Goals for Bout of Books 10:
Read at least 100 pages a day. Finish reading DANCE OF SHADOWS by Yelena Black. Read at least one other book.
- Take part in a Twitter chat.
- Participate in a Challenge.
Books I want to Read:
DANCE OF SHADOWS by Yelena Black

I think a book a day for an entire week will always be out of my league… unless I’m purposely choosing shorter books over the ones I’d rather read, but what’s the point in that? I think your goals sound totally doable. Good luck!
Great goal! I like the idea of choosing page numbers over number of books (which I chose). Maybe next time I’ll do pages instead. Good luck!
Thank you 🙂
I’m really excited for Bout of Books, too, but I still haven’t signed up yet. I need to get on that – like tonight 🙂
Anyway, I still haven’t read Dance of Shadows but I really want to. I have a copy of the book, and it looks creepy, which I like. And yay for ballet!
It does! The ballet aspect of the book was what really sold it to me.

That’s what I’m hoping as well. And I really like the ‘devote at least 2 hours to reading each day’ idea – I might have to do that as well!
Good luck, Becki!
