#BoutofBooks 27!

The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda Shofner and Kelly Rubidoux Apple. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, January 6th and runs through Sunday, January 12th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, Twitter chats, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 27 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team

I love starting out a New Year with a readathon, especially when it’s a week-long readathon. It’s even better when it’s the 2nd week, rather than the 1st of the year, giving me some time to settle in to my new annual reading goal.

My Goals

  • Read.  Read.  Read.
  • Finish at least one of the books I’m currently reading.
  • Finish one more book from my TBR.

Books to Read

  • Lost Books and Old Bones by Paige Shelton
  • I Am a Cat by Natsume Soseki
  • This Book is Overdue! by Marilyn Johnson
  • At least one book from my “TBR” bookshelf on Goodreads.


I will be posting an update each day with the amount of time I read, the number of pages read that day and the titles of any of the books I’ve finished.
