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
Count me in! I missed the last one because life is against me reading or blogging. It’s a long story but it includes thumb tendonitis, broken laptops, quitting smoking (I did it!!), uni work, family illness and a whole lot more. But no more! I am not taking it, I refuse not to read my books.
So I’m in.
Come join me.
My targets this bout:
- Read every day – At least 100 pages. Not much, but with my record of not really reading for a few months this will be a good shove for me.
- Update stats daily
- Take part in some activities.
- Comment on blogs at least one day for an hour.
Book finished – Grey by E. L. James.
New book – The Heir by Kiera Cass
Day trip stole my energy.
Tomorrow has 2 hour long train journeys There surely should be some pages.
The heir is interesting so far, but it seems to be lacking somewhere and I can’t put my finger on it. Hopefully it will pick up.
Did the twitter chat! (we shall not worry about me turning up a few hours late)
I made it! It is the final day and I finally hit my target. I also took part in the challenge and entered the big giveaway. I can’t wait until the next bout in January. Watch this space and join us.
