Bout of Books 14!

Bout of Books


So I will admit I am a little intimidated by this. I'm very new to the book blog world (essentially three days old as of today), but this looked like way too much fun to pass up.

"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 17th and runs through Sunday, August 23rd in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 14 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team "


Time Devoted to Reading

I will be reading all week, whenever I can. I started back at work this week, and have Comic Con all day on Saturday, so time is a little tighter than usual, but I read every day anyway-just going to try to squeeze even a little bit more time in.

My Goals

  • To make a dent in my to be read shelves

  1. I'm currently reading 2 books, too! So far so good, but I keep getting distracted (damn you Twitter haha). Good luck and I hope you read lots of great books.

    1. Yeah, I almost always have a book going that I read during the day, and one that I keep on my nightstand and read before bed at night. It is definitely hard not to get distracted! Thanks, good luck to you too, and I hope you get to read lots of great books too!
