Bout of Books 10.0 - The Sign Up & The Goals

Bout of Books

I can't believe time has gone by so quickly, but I'm excited for the next Bout of Books! This is my second B.O.B. and I really enjoyed participating last time, even though I got sick partway through. Regardless, this time I'm getting my sign up posted and preparing for another week of reading fun!

I also decided to include my goals on here as well. Last Bout, I had a page number goal, and I don't think I'm going to do that this time. Honestly, since I got sick during the past Bout of Books, I was really disappointed that I couldn't meet that goal. So, my goal is to just read books that I really enjoy, and try not to force myself to read anything if I'm not loving it. 

However, I do want to have some goals for the read-a-thon, and so for 10.0 I'm really hoping to do a lot more of the mini-challenges. They look like a ton of fun and I was sad I didn't get to participate in them last time. So, there's my sign up and goals for Bout of Books 10.0! I'm super excited. Here's the official info so you can sign up too!

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, May 12th and runs through Sunday, May 18th 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 10 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team

From the paper world,


  1. The point of having goals is definitely NOT to take the fun out if you can't reach them. Good luck!

  2. You and I seem to have similar book tastes. I look forward to seeing what you have to say during Bout of Books. I see by your sidebar that you like to play the challenge game like I do. If you're interested, I'm starting up a book challenge of my own...the 2014 BOTY Bracket Challenge. You can find the details over at my blog...Elle @ Erratic Project Junkie
