Bout of Books Sign Up ~ Goals and Reading Progress

Bout of Books

I stumbled upon this AWESOME read-a-thon a little late, but I'm going to see what I can do with what's left of the week...it's just TOO good to pass up!!!

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 19th and runs through Sunday, August 25th 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 8.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Booksblog. –From the Bout of Books team

Time Devoted to Reading

I will be hopefully reading 100 pages a day. Anything more will be bonus.
I will be reading primarily at night now that school (work) is back in.
I will also be reading while on the treadmill or stationary bike at the YMCA. 

My Goals
  • My goal is to read 500 pages by Sunday when the read-a-thon ends. Wish me luck!!

Books to Read

  • A Reliable Wife
  • The Best of Us
  • Whistling Past the Graveyard

Any amount of pages is a great start! Just keep reading when you can and don't worry! :)

Good luck! Maybe I can get my hubby to sign up - with him being out of work at the moment, I think he's averaging 3 books a week.
