Yes, I’m going to be participating in the Bout of Books 10.0 readathon.
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 want to read at least 200 pages a day which sounds doable, even when EVERYTHING suddenly sounds more interesting than reading. That’s how readathons usually go for me: I don’t read but my flat is really clean afterwards.
I have four books and a bit of a fifth book on my TBR.
- Which has 414 pages.
- Which has 241 pages.
- Which has 88 pages.
- Which has 548 pages.
- Which has 1119 pages but I only want to get 100 pages read.
So the goal is to read 1400 pages and I have 1391 pages on my TBR. In case I’m faster I’m just going to keep reading Gone With The Wind because I still have quite a few (=800) pages left until the end of the month.
