Bout of Books Read-A-Thon 6.0

I participated in my first-ever read-a-thon about halfway through last year and it was a lot of fun! Bout of Books is back (6.0 style!), so I'm diving in to (hopefully) spend a little extra time reading this next week. Here are the details.

Bout of Books Read-a-Thon

Bout of Books Read-A-Thon 6.0
January 7-13, 2013
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, January 7th and runs through Sunday, January 13th 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 6.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books 6.0 team
My Goals
To read 3 books, or 1000 pages. This is a little more than I generally read in a week but will still allow for plenty of time for work, family, and life in general—which is a little crazy right now. :)

My Updates
I'll be updating my progress daily here. You can also follow my progress on Twitter or Goodreads.

My Books
(Yes, I know this is WAY more than 1000 pages. Just giving myself options!)

Vanished by Irene Hannon (336 pages)

Love Finds You in Glacier Bay, Alaska by Tricia Goyer & Ocieanna Fleiss (320 pages)

 Choices of the Heart by Laurie Alice Eakes (384 pages)

Lovelier than Daylight by Rosslyn Elliott (368 pages)

The Tutor's Daughter by Julie Klassen (416 pages)


  1. That's a considerable amount of books you're reading! Hope you'll get through them and see you around :)

    Book a World

    1. Thanks, Alicia! I probably won't get to all of them, but hope to get through a couple at least!

  2. This is my first read-a-thon too. Good luck!

    1. Ooh! Have a blast! I'm so glad I discovered Bout of Books last year. It's a ton of fun!

    2. (Although, it would be MORE fun if I had read more today!) :)


I love comments! Thanks for letting me know what you think!
