For a few weeks now I’ve been seeing posts about this thing, Bout of Books 14, a read-a-thon. Now, I’ve been itching to participate in one, but generally the goals are a bit too high for my time availability. But this one has no set goals, I can make my own, so seriously, why the hell not?!
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 23th 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
I’ll set my goals reasonably, because I don’t want to fail miserably on my first attempt at a Read-a-thon (and because I still need to get some actual work done during this week). So, I plan to read 3 books:
1. The One Thing by Marci Lyn Curtis – I started this one last night and I’m loving it so far. I’m having a really big problem putting it down, which again, is not convenient because I do need to work. This is an eARC and want to finish it tomorrow at most.
3. Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi – which is also in my August TBR, but I’ve been putting it off because I wanted to get a move on on some ARCs (to get my stats up on Netgalley). But I’ll wait no more, it will be done before next sunday.
So this is it, let’s see how it goes. Ideally I would also be able to start a fourth book this week, but I’m not that optimistic considering my work load.
