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 6th and runs through Sunday, January 12th 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 9.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team
After a little deliberation I decided it would be a great way to kick off the year and get started on a couple of my reading/blogging goals for 2014.
So this is my “Yes I’m participating” and “My Goals” post all rolled into one.
Time Devoted to Reading
- 1.5 hours daily Monday through Friday and 6 total hours over the weekend.
- Get my Netgalley reading list down to a reasonable number. Right now it’s at 8 and I’d like to get it down to 3 or fewer.
