Bout of Books 7.0 Introduction

Here I go participating in another read-athon!!!  LOL......

Bout of Books

The Bouts 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 13th and runs through Sunday, May 19th 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 7.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team.

This read-a-thon could not come at a better time.  Monday will start the first week in my four week break in school!!  Throughout the week I plan to get into three different books.  One I plan to complete, the second I plan to get half way through and the third I plan to get to 50%.  

Below are the books I plan to read this week: 

I am currently 53% into this particular book and this one I plan to complete this week.

I am currently 3% into the book and my goal for the week is to get halfway (50)%) through it.

 This book is designated as a "weekend read" so I am currently at 8%.  Nevertheless I am really getting into the book and wanting to hurry to read it in order to dive into the actual series which means that I need to include it in my weekly reading.  Probably after I finish the two books above, I will not add anymore books until I finish this one.  THEREFORE, I plan to get to 25% of this book throughout the week.

There you have it!  The books I plan to tackle throughout the read-a-thon.

I know what you mean about yet another read-a-thon. It's funny but I think the read-a-thons help me keep on track and push ahead sometimes.

Good Luck on your goals chica.

I only started watching the series of Game of Thrones a few months ago then I got up to date and started the books. They do take a long time to get through though. Think if I chose one of them for BoB it would be the only thing I read!

Good luck!
