Bout of Books 11

Bout of Books
It's Bout of Books time again! I didn't do the last few, but I thought I'd put in as much time as I could this month.

 Check out the details...
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 18th and runs through Sunday, August 24th 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 11 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team

Time Devoted to Reading 
I'll be reading at every free moment. I'll read in the mornings before work and then in the evenings when I get home. My town is getting a new library on Monday (whoohooo!!) and I'll have to take some time off reading to check it out, but other than that I see no distractions on my days off. 

Goals
Due to a drastic reading slump, I'll be happy if I finish two books this week.

  1. Hey, two books is great! When I get in a reading slump, it's hard for me to get out of it, too! I hope you find some books that you will just fly through! And most of all, I hope you have fun! #readstrong
