So this is my first time participating in the Bout of Books Marathon. For those of you who don’t know what that is, here’s a little blurb from the 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
I’m not 100% sure what’s going on still, since I just started looking into this but I’m sure I’ll figure it out as I go. This post is about my goals for this week. I’ve divided them into categories.
Books I need to finish
A Game of Thrones
Books I own
Daughter of Smoke and Bone
Eve & Adam
The Bitter Kingdom
Cast in Peril
The Sea of Monsters Graphic Novel
There could be others in this category but I’ll have to see what becomes available.
I think I’m going to set my goal to 4 books because I’m starting my second term of school on Monday and I’m not sure what’s going on. I’d like to read about 150 pages a day or more if I can. I’m not sure how much time I’m going to have this week so it’s really a bad time to do this but I’ll try anyways.
I’d also like to participate in some of the challenges, at least one, and do some twitter chats. Everything sounds like so much fun! I’m not going to be posting any updates until the end of the marathon. I’ll try and post reviews though when I finish a book.
Who else is trying this? Let me know below and I’ll make sure to follow up extra hard this week.
