Read A Thon/ Bout of Books 11.0 (Sign Up Post)

Bout of Books
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, August 18th and runs through Sunday, August 24th 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 11 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team.
Every year I see the Bout of Books read-a-thon and either I say “Oh I should sign up for this” or “darn I missed out on it” and I never do or I just miss it, so this time I was watching for it and when I saw that its happening next week I quickly checked the calendar to see what was planned and its a pretty quiet week so I figured I would sign up for it.
There is still time for you to sign up if you would like to take part all you have to do is CLICK ON THIS TEXT and it will take you to the sign up page.
I am currently thinking about what books I really want to read and hoping to get through that little pile.
Are you going to take part?

Book Blogger Holiday Swap 2009 Gift Recieved

Earlier this month I signed up for the Book Blogger Holiday Swap. This is the first year I decided to take part in any book blogger holiday exchange.

I was pleasantly surprised to have already received my Secret Santa present. I am not sure of the protocol but I already opened it my present. I hope that is okay. I always will have mine in the mail this week that I have to send out.

My Secret Santa sent me the following goodies:
-The Makedown by Gitty Daneshvari
-several bookmarks
-several postcards
-this book belongs to sticker
-a book sticker
-and a xmas card

My Secret Santa is Diana. She is a Canadian blogger and I can’t wait to check out her blog. You can see her blog http://www.orientaldesires.blogspot.com/.

Thank you to Diana for my Secret Santa present and to everyone who organized the Book Blogger Holiday Swap 2009.

Book Blogger Holiday Swap Wish list


I recently decided to take part in the Book Blogger Holiday Swap. This is the first time I am doing so and really looking forward to doing it.

I sadly don’t have a wish list online (I don’t know why?) so I figured I would make this post so that my Secret Santa would get an idea of what books I really would like to read.

– Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins
– I Heart You, You Haunt Me by Lisa Schroeder
– Perfect You by Elizabeth Scott
– Once A Witch by Carolyn MacCullough
– The Secret of Joy by Melissa Senate
– Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver

Hope that helps out my Secret Santa.

I am reading a lot of YA lately and you can see in my In My Mailbox & Books Bought Meme to see what I already have.

Do you have a good book that you have read that I should read? If so tell me and I will add it.
