Featured Graphics (1)

I completed 2 of my 3 goals! YAY! I’m pretty proud of myself. I definitely read more than I wanted, but I didn’t get to any of the books on my TBR. Oh well, I still read. That’s what really counts. Maybe I can host this read-a-thon next year….

I haven’t started any of the books on the TBR that set for this read-a-thon, but I have been reading. I’m pretty pleased with myself that I’ve been able to read as much as I have. Baby steps.

Banned/Challenged Books Read-a-thon TBR and Goals

Featured Graphics (1)

I’m going to be participating in the Banned/Challenged Books Read-a-thon hosted by Book Dragon’s Lair. I haven’t really heard much about this, so I’m not sure it’s actually happening. HOWEVER, I’m still going to participate because I have a ton of banned or challenged books that I could pound through. Why not? Also, read-a-thons are a huge motivation for me. So, I’m doing this read-a-thon for myself.

I set myself three goals that set the bar really, really low. Like, so low. So, so low.

Goals:

  • Read 300 pages
  • Finish 2 books
  • Read for 4 hours

TBR:

  • Perks of Being a Wallflower
  • The House on Mango Street
  • Elanor and Parks
  • Whatever book I haven’t finish

If you want to join, let know in the comments below. I’m going to do a check-in once during the read-a-thon and a wrap-up at the end. Keeping it simple. I’ll be using the hastag #BCBReadathon on instagram to keep track of these posts. I’m pretty sure I’ll be the only one using it, but oh well!

Bout of Books 20 Wrap-up

Bout of Books
It’s done! Another Bout of Books Read-a-thon is under the belt. The graphic below shows my progress. While I didn’t meet my reading goals, I am very proud of my progress. Plus, it gave me the boost I needed to begin blogging again.
 If anyone was curious, Bout of Books 21 will be held  on Jan. 8-14, 2018. The next read-a-thon I will probably participate in will be the Banned/Challenged Books Read-a-thon on Sept. 24-30.

Woot! Another Bout of Books!! Who’s excited?

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 18th and runs through Sunday, August 24th 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 11 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team
