Bout of Books 8.0 – Goals and Tracking

BoB8.0-200x200

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 19th and runs through Sunday, August 25th 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 8.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team

Goals

I am aiming to read 10 books this week! Is it possible? Yes. Is it probable? Probably not. On average I read 4-5 books in a given week and since it is a read-a-thon I am going to aim high! I am going to try and not read multiple books at a time because then I feel the need to switch frequently and that causes me to lose my stride. I am keeping track of pages read even though it is NOT required to do at all. The only requirement is to READ 🙂 I also want to connect with new bloggers through Twitter and blogs. I have met some great people in this community already and would love to meet more.

    Hallo, Hallo! 🙂 I am finally able to make my rounds to all the lovely Bout’er blogs I found whilst we were all signing up! 🙂 I was quite chuffed to see someone else wanted to attempt to read 10 books! I see that your updates are missing a bit here,… your still in the Bout and doing okay!? I know what is like to get a bit discouraged, but I told myself that despite the hiccups that have arisen whilst I have been attempting to read, I am still making a headway towards getting into the books I slated to pick up this week! 🙂 🙂 Hopefully nothing too serious happened OR maybe its just lack of time!? I understand that quite well myself! That was why I was thankful I originally could block out the hours to sit and settle into the books! Of course, sometimes life has other plans, eh!? I honestly have never heard of these titles, so it will be keen to see if you blog your impressions afterwards! I’d love to read your thoughts on what they were about! 🙂
