Bout of Books Read-a-thon!


I’ll be participating in The Bout of Books read-a-thon!  Here’s their official blurb:

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, May 12th and runs through Sunday, May 18th 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 10 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.

My Goals

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

Books to Read

  • Bossypants by Tina Fey
  • City of Bones by Cassandra Clare
  • Grand Obsession: A Piano Odyssey by Perri Knize
  • One book off of my TBR shelf – TBA once I’ve finished the other 3.


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. Tomorrow, I will re-post my goals, with any adjustments.

  1. Oh, I would have love to add that I would like to finish my currently-reading books but The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt is too large for me to finish in a week. I really liked Bossypants, hope you like it too! 🙂

    Good luck and happy reading!
