Bout of Books 11!

Bout of Books

Yeah! I’m totally signing up for Bout of Books again! I’m really looking forward to it!

In case you don’t know … here’s what it’s all about:

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, August 18th and runs through Sunday, August 24th 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 11 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team

Sounds exciting, right?! I’m so excited! I’ll also be keeping track of my goals and progress here on this page.

My goals:

  • Read
  • Visit new blogs
  • Participate in at least 1 challenge

Once again, I’m keeping it very simple. It works best for me that way … I don’t like to feel pressured, once I get to that point I essentially shut down 😦

My progress:
