Bout of Books 27 *Stephanie’s Tracking*

Bout of Books

The Official Blurb:

The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda Shofner and Kelly Rubidoux Apple. 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. There are challenges, Twitter chats, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 27 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team

The Goal:

This time I want to really challenge myself. I hit 1,200 pages in the last Bout of Books and I think I’m going to shoot for 1,500 pages and try to average two hours a day reading (minimum). I’ll be using Bookly to track both of these numbers and I’ll probably use it to update my status on social media.
