Bout of Books 4.0 Reading Goals, Starting Line and Updates

Posted May 14th, 2012 by in Bookish Events / 6 comments

I’ve decided to join Amanda from On a Book Bender in her Bout of Books Read-a-thon. Click the button below to learn more. The read-a-thon starts Monday, 5/14 and goes through Sunday 5/20. Things are finally starting to settle down in my personal life so let the reading commence!

Read-a-Thon Goals
*My main goal in this read-a-thon is to not stress but still get a good amount of reading in.
*Participate in at least one of the Twitter chats.

Books to Knock Out
*Corspe in the Crystal Ball by Kari Lee Townsend
*The Duke is Mine by Eloisa James
*Storm’s Heart by Thea Harrison
*Simply Perfect by Mary Baloh

How Much Time I Intend to Read: I’d like to get in 3 hours a day total. It’d be ideal to get in more than that but I’m trying to be realistic.

So yeah, I kind of epically failed this read-a-thon. It never fails that I fail so it shouldn’t be a surprise. Maybe I have commitment issues? Oh well, I had fun when I did have a chance to read and I know that quite a few other people had a great time! It’s all worth it and maybe next time I’ll be a better planner. Maybe. 😉

I hope to get quite a few books read but realistically we’ll see how it goes! I’m going to go settle into my reading stance and get a decent chunk through my first book tonight! 🙂

    Owww… you're gonna love Storm's Heart. It was one of my favorites. Good luck and have fun!

    You will read what you will read! There is no pressure–unless of course you are reading a book I am on the fence about then you must finish it so you can make the decision for me LOL (Just Teasing–sort of)!
