Bout of Book: Read-A-Thon Goals

Bout of Books Read-a-Thon
Hosted by Amanda @ On a Book Bender

My goal this week is to get through all the books I have due during the read-a-thon so I can read books I've been wanting to read for pleasure.  There are two books on my list that I've promised to review the week after, so those will be read first.

This will sadly be my last week off before I start my summer classes so I've decided to make my goal a little more challenging.  I have 11 books listed below, but I hope to get through 10 of them.  If I start number 11 then Yay Me!  


Books To Read:

The first two are author requested and the others I've been dying to read.  Now, I have already read Wings, Spells, and Illusions before, but because it has been so long since I put Illusions down, I want to read them all in succession so I can properly swoon over Tamani.

I will not be posting Read-A-Thon updates on the blog frequently.  One, maybe two updates per day.  I will, however, be posting all the important information, like number of pages & books read, on my Bout of Books Read-A-Thon page at the top of the blog as I finish reading a book or when I take a break.

I have 10 books on my list, but I know I will only get about half of them done... although I'd love to pass my Bout-of-Books 5 book slump. Good luck and have fun!

You'll have to let me know if you like Wings! I couldn't decide if I wanted to read it or not. Hope you like it, and the rest of your reads! Good luck!

I'm reading Half-Blood as well. Reading Daimon first was really helpful and flows into the story really well.

During the school year I normally read 3 per week, but when I'm on break I can get anywhere from 5-8 done with lots of social networking. So, I'm trying to read a much as possible while still being able to network 5-10 minutes per hour.

Thanks for stopping by!
