Bout of Books Read-a-thon - UPDATED

 
http://boutofbooks.blogspot.com/p/welcome.html
 
 
I think I am going to attempt my first read-a-thon, in what is the craziest week of the Spring for me.  Who says this girls doesn't love a bit of a challenge? 
 

What is Bout of Books? I'm so glad you asked!

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, May 12th and runs through Sunday, May 18th 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 10 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog.
 
 
So let's see...

Time Devoted to Reading:

My goal is to read at least 2 hours a day during the weekdays and at least 5 hours each weekend day.  This is much less than my usual weekend reading but with so much craziness next week I will be lucky if I can scrape together 5 hours.  

My Goals:

  • To read until I'm sick of it. 
  • Fall asleep with my Nook on my face
  • In a perfect book reading world finish six (6) books or 1,000 pages 
 

Books to Read - maybe, this could change depending on my mood

  • A Great and Terrible Beauty
  • The Sea of Monsters
  • Destiny Rewritten
  • To all the Boys I've Loved Before
  • Throne of Glass
  • It's Not Summer Without You
