Bout of Books 11: Particpation and Goals!

Posted August 16, 2014 by Cristina (Girl in the Pages) in Reading Challenges, Weekly Features/Memes / 7 Comments

BoB11-200x200This is my first time participating in a Bout of Books read-a-thon, a wonderfully low-pressure week where readers and bloggers alike set reading goals and update each other on their progress! As I just finished up my summer job, it’s the perfect time for me to catch up on reading and blogging next week and I’m excited to participate!

The Official Purpose:

“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

My Goals for the Bout of Books Week:

-Finish the book I started this weekend (Paper Valentine by Brenna Yovanoff)

-Read the Lux prequel novella Shadows by Jennifer L. Armentrout

– Read at least 3 books I’ve checked out from the library

-Catch up on all of my review posts

I’ll have an updates post that I’ll add to throughout the week to track my progress! Are you participating? If so, what are your goals?
