It’s that time again! BOUT OF BOOKS TIME! =)
“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 7th and runs through Sunday, January 13th 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 6.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. -From the Bout of Books 6.0 team”
The readathon will begin at midnight CST on January 7th…that’s Monday! So I guess it is time for me to list my readathon goals!
My Goals for this Readathon are:
Read at least 5 Judy Blume Books (because she is my Juvenile Author of the Month!)!
Get at least halfway through A Game of Thrones on audio!
Finish at least 2 other books! (for a week total of more that 1000 pages!)
Participate in at least 1 Twitter chat!
Participate in 4 challenges!
Visit 10 blogs a day and comment (because I need to do this more!)!
