Bout of Books Read-a-Thon

Bout of Books Read-a-Thon

I've stared at my growing TBR pile this weekend and thought long and hard about getting it read. By joining in on a read-a-thon, I thought I'd cross a few more books off of my list and meet more bloggers! Two birds. One stone.

I'll be participating in a read-a-thon hosted by Bout of Books (and signed up very last minute). It's purpose is to encourage each other in reading as much as we can! It's an awesome way to network and get motivation. To follow my progress, look back at this post while I edit it or better yet, follow me on Twitter!

Here's a list of my goals and updates as I go:

My Goals
- Finish 1 book I'm currently reading
- Finish 1 audiobook I'm currently listening to
- Read 2 Books
- Listen to 2 Audiobooks

  1. Way to go! Keep up the great reading!

  2. Holy cow..great first day. I am now stalking you on GFC and twitter. I finished one book and wrote two reviews on Monday. Today I worked, but did read 150 pages of Half-Blood and visited blogs!

  3. Sick start! I have Bloodlines sitting on my shelf staring at me, but alas Deadlocked (Sookie #12) is first. I am a big fan of audiobooks myself, how is Dead Girls Dance?

    New follower thanks to bout of books! Via Twitter and GFC.


  4. You read Dead Girls' Dance too? Why didn't I notice that before? I absolutely loved it... and I might have even teared up a little. Shane tore me up. I read it as part of Volume 1 and had saved it for Bout-of-Books. Now I really, really want Volume 2, which is super cheap right now from Amazon, BTW. Happy Friday!


I love receiving comments! I really do read every single one and I strive to respond to each comment that needs a response (and many more!).
