My First Bout of Books Read-a-Thon!

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

My goals for the read-a-thon are as follows:
  • Read at least 200 pages a day. I can't really set a book/day goal because of the varying lengths of my choices.
  • Watch a maximum of 1 hour of television a day.
  • Read at least two hardcopies from my TBR shelf instead of cozying up to my Kindle the entire week.
I'm going to list ten possible books to read this week because I want options, but I'm only aiming to read around five. These are my choices:

1. The Innocent Mage

2. The Midnight Mayor

3. A Game of Thrones
4. The Hunchback Assignments

5. The Blade Itself

6. The Way of Shadows
7. The Coming of Conan the Cimmerian
8. Assassin's Apprentice

9. The Name of the Wind

10. Lord Foul's Bane

Happy reading!!
