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
As I am currently running super behind both in signing up for this Bout of Books, and in blog posts in general, I have decided to combine what would normally be two posts… Sorry in advance if this post gets super long!!
Bout of Books 11 is my fourth time taking part in this read-a-thon. On the whole I have found the read-a-thon to be really enjoyable, and I have been on the whole quite successful with my goals. Taking part in the read-a-thon has also helped me to get back on track with my reading schedule, which I’m falling behind on yet again. Here’s hoping that this one will continue that pattern.
So without further ado, here are my goals for Bout of Books 11.
Time Devoted To Reading … I think I’m going to go with the same goal as I did with Bout of Books 10, I’m going to aim to read about 2 hours a day for the whole seven days.
My Goals for Bout of Books 10:
Read 100 pages a day minimum. Take part in 1 Twitter chat. Participate in 1 Challenge.
Books I want to Read:
These are the books which are next in my TBR pile. I doubt I will manage to read all of them, but it would be nice to make a dent into the stack. I’m going very much by my mood this time, so which ones I read will definitely depend on how I feel on that particular day.
