Bout of Books 2.0


It’s here! Bout of Books 2.0 is going on all week over at On a Book Bender and I’m going to try to actually follow through this time. I completed a short read-a-thon over the weekend that ended in an epic fail when I spent Sunday buying things and then having to update all of my technology through lengthy upgrade downloads, but that’s a story for another time.

I’ll be updating all week on this post. Here are my goals for the week:

1) Read at least three books start to finish.
2) Read at least one review request book.
3) Read at least one library book.

I hope to get more than that, but we’ll start conservatively since my weekend is mostly taken with Halloween activities.

I’m copying Amanda’s format for updates, but I’m changing it to tracking page count and not book count since I won’t be reading that many whole books.
