Okay, I'm in. I'll be reading my guts out anyway next week, might as well join the party, eh? And this readathon is one rousing party. You know you'll feel left out if you don't just give in and join the fun!
Here are the details as given on their main Bout of Books blog:
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, January 6th and runs through Sunday, January 12th 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 9.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team
As for my goals for the week? They'll be pretty much what I listed the other day on my December Recap post, but I'll list them again here:
- Read Into the Still Blue
- Read Allegiant (just got this ebook from the library today. Finally, I can be in the know!)
- Re-read Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet for book club
- Find Prodigy and read it.
- Finish Eye of Minds.... maybe. Having a hard time with this book!
I feel like I'll be doing really well if I can do that much. Not sure what the week has in store, but kids will be going back to school and I'm hoping life will be calm and good for lots of reading. Time-wise, I'm not sure what to say for a goal. Can I just say... "I'll read a lot!" ? Good enough?
Meanwhile, this weekend I'm going to finish Last Train to Paris, so I can concentrate on the above mentioned books for the readathon.
Come join us!
