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 19th and runs through Sunday, August 25th 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 8.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team
In spite of my SUPER BUSY WEEK, I am still looking forward to Bout of Books. I will be going between Grad School Orientation, Work, and my first day of classes, but in between I plan on reading! (And buying a desk, lol). I do not have to work over the weekend, so I am REALLY excited to have some time to relax and read. =)
As always, to help me organize my week, I have a couple of Readathon Goals.
Bout of Books 8.0 Goals:
1. Finish six books.
2. Visit 2 blogs per day
3. Write 2 reviews.
4. Chat on twitter at least 15 minutes a day.
Pretty straight forward goals this time. I want to participate as much as I can, but I know my time will be much more limited this go around.
Now, what six books am I going to be reading this week?
Why, the Archie and Gretchen series by Chelsea Cain, of course! These books are so addicting and so fast-paced that I think I can get through them during such a busy readathon week. I have already read the first 5, but with the recent release of book 6 I am going to RE-READ THEM. Because I am a little crazy.
So, what are you planning on reading? Have you read anything by Chelsea Cain? Leave
me a comment and let me know!
And, if you are on twitter, leave me your twitter handle. Or just follow me @alibrarianslib . I’d love to chat with you!
Love and New Planners,
