Bout of Books 10!

Bout of Books

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 12th and runs through Sunday, May 18th 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 10 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team

I've heard about the Bout of Books Read-a-thon from the BookTube community and it sounds like a lot of fun, so I've decided to give it a shot! I will actually be pretty busy this upcoming week with work and a lot of family functions, but since it's such a low key read-a-thon I figured, why not have some fun?!

So here are my goals for this read-a-thon:

1. Read 1,000 pages this week
2. Dedicate at least one hour to reading every day

And that's it...just 2 simple goals (uh yeah, we'll see...)

And here's what's on my reading list:

1. Finish "The Light Between Oceans" by M.L. Stedman
2. "Fangirl" by Rainbow Rowell
3. N or M? by Agatha Christie

We'll see if I can meet my goals... 1,000 pages is pretty ambitious for me, since I'm a fairly slow reader, but I wanted to challenge myself just a little bit (or a lotta bit!). I'm super excited to be participating, though, and regardless of how much I will actually read, I'm sure it will be loads of fun!!

Are you participating in this read-a-thon? If so, what's on your reading list?


  1. This is my first time participating as well & I'm really excited! 1000 pages would be VERY ambitious for me -- I wish you luck!

    Thanks for stopping by my Top Ten Tuesday post last week :)

    1. Good luck with your goals, and happy reading!! :)
