Bout of Books 5.0 Read-a-thon (Goals, Updates & Challenges)

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, August 13th and runs through Sunday, August 19th 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 5.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. -From the Bout of Books 5.0 team.

This is my first time taking part in the Bout of Books read-a-thon and I am super excited. I love that this is a week long event. I am hoping that this will help me get out of my reading funk that I have sort of been in this summer.

This is where I will be posting all of my updates throughout the week. I decided that I will be including the challenges that I take part in this too. This template provided by Bout of Books. Thanks.

Books Read:
~The Land of Stories: The Wishing Spell by Chris Colfer

Challenges completed:
~What happens to your books when you are done reading them?

Day 1 (Monday)
Challenge: What happens to the books when you are done reading them?
Host(s): The Space Between and Reading in Texas

My answer: Personally for me when I am done reading and reviewing the book, two things can possibly happen (1) if its something that I really liked or is part of a series of books I will keep the book and shelf it in my read book case and (2) if its something that I don’t see me keeping I pass it on to other blogger friends. I am very good at passing books along.

Time Devoted to Reading:

I am hoping to get as much reading as I can in but not sure how much will get read during the day since I have my son with me and in the evenings I am hoping to get in as much as possible.

My Goals:

I am really hoping to get at least 5 to 6 books read. Hoping to discover some new blogs and perhaps comment more.

Books to Read:

I am hoping to read the following:
~Size 12 and Ready to Rock by Meg Cabot
~The Demon Catchers of Milan by Kat Beyer
~The Unnaturalists by Tiffany Trent
~Enchanted by Alethea Kontis
~One perfect Summer by Paige Toon
~Hell on Wheels by Julie Ann Walker
~Throughly Kissed by Kristine Grayson
~Charming Blue by Kristine Grayson

It will be nice to make a dent in my TBR pile.

I thought I would add this to my post, its all the new blogs I have discovered in the read-a-thon. The ones being added are the ones I have commented on.
