Bout of Books

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 22nd and runs through Sunday, August 28th 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 19 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team.


My goals for the week:

I just finished up Dewey’s Readathon, which was amazing! I actually did the 24 hours, thanks to my hubby for making food and watching the mutts. I was able to read 8 books, although four were novellas. I love the idea of novellas during readathons. It just makes the time seem like it is going by a bit easier. Plus I can pat myself on the back for reading four when I basically read ONE.

  • Read, read, read!
  • A book a day. Tuesday and Thursday are school days so that might cut into a bit of time but if I can still swing one a day, that’ll be awesome!
  • A few from Netgalley.
  • Most importantly: HAVE FUN!

Monday 05/08
Challenge:
Reading today: Z Towers: An Apocalyptic Plague – 190 pages
Total number of books I’ve read: 1!
Notes: Easy day. Day off from school and other obligations makes the day wonderful. Cat decided he needed attention so I worked on petting him to make him happy while also reading. Fun day.

Tuesday 05/09
Challenge: Not a Font
Reading today:  Be, Feel, Think, Do – 256 pages
Total number of books I’ve read: 2
Notes: I haven’t yet taken the time to look at my books to see if I have any that meet today’s challenge. May have to check out Goodreads and see if I can find any there. When I have the time! Dogs were just getting into everything they could! I love dogs, I love dogs, I love dogs!

Wednesday 05/10
Challenge: Share Your Shelfie Use the hashtags #boutofbooks and #shelfie4boutofbooks
Reading today: Adrift Series #1
Total number of books I’ve read: 2
Notes: Worked on school work and mostly this morning was spent corralling the dogs AGAIN. I really do love them. Going to try to read at least book one of the Adrift Series. Hopefully at only 200 pages that will go well. Lunch first! I’m starving!

Thursday 05/11
Challenge:
Reading today: I Need a Lifeguard Everywhere but the Pool
Total number of books I’ve read: 4
Notes: Today was a good day! Started reading I Need a Lifeguard the other day and it’s just so good I had to finish it off. It publishes in July so I don’t feel too bad about pushing my other TBR books aside. Dogs still acted up but I was able to finish a book! Hubby had a bad day at work, so we’re going to have a date night but my goal of one book a day is still working, so I’m pretty excited. No time to really play with the challenges due to school and other RL stuff, so I’m disappointed because they sound fun but at least I’m getting some reading in.
