Bout of Books Readathon Update for Wednesday

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 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.

GOALS AND BOOKS-TO-READ
 
Books to Read

Here is a picture of the library books I have to read:


Originally I had three books a couple of weeks ago. I don't ever go into the library and browse. I request what I want and then pick it up when it comes in. The reason for doing that is because I always have little kids with me and it's just easier to keep them happy and watch them if I'm not looking for books for me too; and new releases can be hard to get if I don't request them in advance. Several of these had holds on them and I didn't think I would get them so soon, but it seems that when I have a lot to read that my holds all come in at the same time.

There are some really great books here that I am really excited to read, but since others have requested some of them, I have a limited amount of time to get them read. Thus, joining a read-a-thon. :) Two of these, The Hallowed Ones and Tuesdays at the Tower, are due on Monday. If I get them read before Monday then I won't include them in this. Hopefully I will so that I then only have 13 books left to read.

So, I was looking to see what else I need to get read and realized that I've got some books that wouldn't transfer to my Kindle that I downloaded as EPUBs that will expire in a week. I will try to get through as many of those as well. Some may be DNF for me, but I would like to give them enough of a try or read them in order to give feedback on NetGalley anyway. Here they are:



I also have Fifteen Minutes by Karen Kingsbury (has no cover yet) that will be expiring and I would like to read.

Time Devoted to Reading

I'm planning on reading every day. If I can get one book finished every day, that would be fabulous!

My Goal

My goal is to get five of these library books read this week. I have a couple of books for tours and one for review that I have to read besides these, so I probably won't make it, but I'll sure try. :) That would be a total of eight (8) books! If I can read during nap time and after the kids go down for the night, I might make it. My house can suffer for a week, right?

No comments

I love comments! I try to read and reply to them all. Feel free to agree or disagree and generally share your thoughts with me.
