Bout of Books 7.0 | Goals Post

Bout of Books 7.0 is coming up in just two weeks! The next two weeks are really busy at work—with a huge event next week and prep for said event this week—so this read-a-thon is coming at the perfect time! It will be a great "reward" for all of the craziness of the next couple of weeks.

Bout of Books Read-A-Thon 7.0
May 13-19, 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, May 13th and runs through Sunday, May 19th 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 7.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team
My Goals
To read 2000 pages.
I'm trying to push myself with this read-a-thon. We'll see how it goes, I guess. :)

My Updates
I'll be updating my progress daily (link to come). You can also follow my progress on Twitter or Goodreads.

  1. Great list of books! I loved The Heiress's Homecoming and The Healer's Apprentice! I'm also really looking forward to reading Defending the Duchess. :)

  2. Hello,
    I saw that you were doing the Bout of Books read-a-thon. That is a really big list! I've followed you to make sure I get your updates! I would really appreciate it if you could come over to my blog to check it out, and if you like it, you can follow me as well. I hope you'll follow my read-a-thon journey. I blog about my favourite music and books hence the name Music Plus Books.
    Thank you and good luck,
