Bout of Books 6.0

I am starting the year off with a new-to-me read-a-thon!

BoB6.0-300x200

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, January 7th and runs through Sunday, January 13th 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 6.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. -From the Bout of Books 6.0 team

This is my first time joining in on the read-a-thon fun.

Goals: Start and finish 3 books and finish 2 that have been started for a total of at least 5 books read.

  • Finish ARC of How to Lead a Life of Crime by Kirsten Miller
  • Finish rereading Okay for Now by Gary Schmidt.
  • Start and finish The Emperor of Nihon-Ja by John Flanagan
  • Start and finish two other books, to be decided later (Eleven on Top by Janet Evanovich and ?)
  • Start When She Woke by Hillary Jordan on CD
  • Participate in at least 3 Challenges
  • Write 1 book review
