Bout of Books 4.0 – Goals

Bout of Books 4.0!
Personally I have never participated in a book read-a-thon before so I’m actually really excited to be participating in this one and can’t wait for it to start on Monday!
If you’re like me and have never participated in one, or don’t even know what one is, here is a quick lowdown for you;

The Bout of Books Read-a-Thon was created by Amanda @ On a Book Bender on a complete whim in August 2011*.  It took on a life of its own and was such a hit that Amanda decided to do it again and turn it into a somewhat regular occurrence.  There are no set dates for Bout of Books; rather, Amanda tries to work with Bout of Books participants to determine the best dates for them.

If you want to join us, I believe there is still time to sign up, so go do it now! It should be a blast!

5/14
Number of books I’ve read today: 3/4 of 1
Total number of books I’ve read: 0
Books: Helens of Troy by Janine McCaw
Thoughts: This has been a tough book to get through. It’s long and there are parts I fly through because it’s so good and there there are parts which are tough. It’s a bit touch and go. But I plan to get it finished today! –fingers crossed-

5/15
Number of books I’ve read today: 1 and 1/4
Total number of books I’ve read: 1
Books: Helens of Troy by Janine McCaw, The Witches in the Glass Castle by Gabriella Lepore
Thoughts: Still not sure what to think about Helens, but The Witches in the Glass Castle is a very quick and enthralling read so far!

The chances are, I will probably get extremely busy for some reason throughout the week and will struggle to get five books read but I hope that this isn’t the case. I am incredibly behind on my reading and really just need to catch up! Can’t wait to get this party on the road though!
