Bout of Books 6.0 Goals

Bout of Books Read-a-Thon
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

I’m driving back up to uni on Tuesday, and will be doing so much coursework this week since I have a huge piece due in next week that I haven’t really managed to start over the holidays.  Seriously, it’s horrifying how much I have to get done.

I will need some breaks from my coursework though right? So I’ll be taking part in Bout of Books 6 but trying not to set my goals too high. I’ll probably be focusing on things that I can drop in and out of – more commenting than reading in all likelihood (but we’ll see how it goes, and how much work I can get done!)

I don’t have any books on the go at the minute, so it’s a chance to start fresh with my reading choices.

My goals
1000 pages + or 3 books +
3 reviews + written and scheduled: 1 , 2, 3
Try to participate in at least 2 challenges

My choices
I’m hoping to choose a selection from…

Books for review:
               



Any of my Kindle Freebies (particularly the ones on my other half’s kindle!)

Books I own:

  1. I’m also going to be super busy this week, but you’re totally right, we all need a break from life, right? 😉 But I think you’ve set yourself some really realistic goals, that you’ll hopefully be able to achieve. I really want to buy myself a copy of The Sea of Tranquility, after seeing some good reviews for that book. Splintered also looks fabulous! And Before I Fall is such a great book. <3

    Good luck with your goals, and happy reading! =)
