Bout of Books

I’m in a bit of a reading lull at the moment as I attempt not to hurry through the short stories of My True Love Gave to Me, so I thought I’d sign up for next week’s Bout of Books 12.

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 12:01 a.m. Monday, January 5th, and runs through Sunday, January 11th, 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 12 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team

My 2013 reading output (input?) was nearly 1.25 books or more than 300 pages a week. So I’d say my goals for next week are:

  1. To read every day;
  2. To finish two books OR to read 400 pages; and
  3. To blog about books at least twice next week. (The posts do not need to be long, and all topical posts do not have to relate to my current reading.)

I have two finalists from this year’s Cybils Award due back to the library this week, a shiny pile of literary Christmas presents, and a plethora of languishing titles in my To Be Read mountains to choose from. I look forward to seeing what I settle on as my starting read at midnight.

Feel like reading along, too? Goal-setting is optional and non-binding. You can sign up at the link above.
