Getting Ready For Bout of Books 8.0

BoB8.0-200x200

YAY Read-a-thons! I have signed up for another round of Bout of Books. The week-long event starts on Monday (8/19) and it’s time to start setting some goals. If you aren’t signed up yet, I suggest you get busy. Then, grab this handy template and start planning your week.

Time Devoted to Reading

This one is easy. I read and listen everyday! I know that I will not be able to finish my audio books, but I am going to try complete the four books and two graphic novels listed.

My Goals

  • My primary goal for this week is to get caught up on my Goodreads reading goal. I am still a couple of books behind. Turns out that this was my #1 goal during BoB 7.0.
