Bout of Books

I’ve decided to take part in Bout of Books this week. I’ve really not been reading much lately and maybe this will focus my mind a bit.

Here’s how the people behind it describe it:
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 17th and runs through Sunday, August 23th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 14 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team

This will be the first time I’ve taken part in Bout of Books but I’ve got a feeling I may have signed up and then not taken part once before.

My first thought was to set a goal of 1 book a day – i.e. 7 books over the readathon.  But I’m not sure that’s a realistic goal.  So instead I’ll declare that my realistic goal is to read 4 books and to finish the audiobook I’ve been listening to – Humans by Matt Haig – which I’ve not listened to a second of in over a week.  I’ll be bearing my unrealistic goal in mind though!

Most importantly I’m currently 3 books behind in my goodreads challenge. I’d like to end the readathon back on track.

    Bout of Books is great for catching up on reading, although I tend to socialize more than read during it. I try to listen to something too during the event. Bout of Books is one of my favorite readathons, and is probably my favorite. Good luck with your goals!
