Bout of Books Read-a-thon! (4)

bout of books

This is my favorite Read-a-thon to participate in, and even though I’m still dealing with an eye strain injury, I’m going to give it a go! (Are you all sick of hearing about my eyes yet? I sure am sick of talking about it… and, you know, dealing with it). Even when fully healthy, I’ve learned that I just can’t seem to compete with the numbers I put up during my first BoB (I was a reading machine!), So my goals this time around are somewhat less ambitious than they have been in the past.

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, January 4th and runs through Sunday, January 10th 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 15 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team

Niki’s Goals:

– Finish 3 books

– Read 800 pages

– Don’t overdo it (eyes)

that’s it.

Here’s a look at the books on my immediate radar:
(subject to change if I see something shiny)

Three of my options are audiobooks, so I can still feel like I’m accomplishing something if my eyes don’t cooperate.
