Bout of Books 11!


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.

Time Devoted to Reading

I will be reading every day of the week whenever I’m not at work instead of watching TV or gaming.  I will also read during my lunch breaks at work instead of playing Doctor Who Legacy on my phone (that game is so addictive!).

My Goals

  • finish off the books I’ve been “currently” reading.
  • Read at least one new book off of my TBR shelf.

Books to Read

  • The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay by Michael Chabon
  • One book off of my TBR shelf – TBA once I’ve finished the book above, but it will probably be either The Scottish Prisoner or The Fiery Cross by Diana Gabaldon.


I will be updating with one post each day with the number of books I’ve read that day, the titles of the books read, and the total number of books read.  If I wasn’t able to finish a book that day, I’ll put the number of pages read instead.  I will also post whatever challenges, if any, I’ve participated in. On Day 1, I will re-post my goals, with any adjustments.
