Due to some life and work changes that happened last fall, my reading pace has significantly decreases compared to 2012 and 2013. I set my Goodreads Challenge to just 50 books this year, in hopes that I would be able to read about 1 book per week. Right now I am 2 books behind (I finished Isla and the Happily Ever After the day it was released - gotta love preordering on a Kindle!) and I hope to get ahead during this readathon.
Bout of Books 11.0 Goals
- Read every day! I will be on vacation for the duration of this readathon so it shouldn't be a difficult goal to achieve but I want to bump reading up on my priorities list.
- Read 6 books to gain headway on my annual Goodreads Challenge
- Cheer on other readers via their blogs, twitter and instagram! Connecting with other readers is the best part of any readathon so I am going to spend time each day checking in with other people that have signed up on the Bout of Books posts and following along with the #boutofbooks hashtag on instagram and twitter.
If you are participating in Bout of Books, leave your information in the comments section so I can follow your progress!
