I participated in my very first Read-a-thon back in August and had so much fun I decided to do it again in January. I came in shy of my ridiculously low goals both times, and I’m hoping that third time is a charm! I was incredibly busy during the last two events, so this time I feel like I have a fair shot to least do better than last time (books completed: a whole whopping 1, pages read: 754). Wish me luck!
Here’s a little more about the event:
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 11th and runs through Sunday, May 17th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 13 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team
– Finish at least 3 books
– Read at least 1000 pages
Here’s a look at the books on my immediate radar:
(subject to change if I see something shiny)
If I’m lucky I might finish more than one book this time, but since I’m just starting a 700 page fantasy, it’s not looking too good. Notice how pessimistic I am this time around? That’s to soften the blow if I have a repeat pathetic performance. :-) Best case scenario is that I get to complete my goals… Although I would be incredibly happy just to get my page count up.
