It's that time again and I am excited to be able to participate in this round of Bout of Books. I have had my slumps this year because I am so busy with my two jobs, but this is a great oportunity to catch up. At one of my jobs I am allowed to listen to music while I work and of course I choose audio books to listen too. I have been able to catch up on a lot of older books on my to-read list and I am loving it. In case you don’t know what Bout of Books is all about here is a little blurb:
The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a weeklong read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, May 12th and runs through Sunday, May 18th 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 10 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books teamBout of Books was the very first blogging event I participated in and I had so much fun. I have been giving my goals some thought this year and I have a few ideas. I know I want to try to participate more in the little events they have during the week. I am also participating in a year long Graphic Novel Challenge, and like an idiot, I said I would read 52 graphic novels this year. That’s one a week and I figured that would be a piece of cake. Last year I was downing 2 to 3 a week. Well, I am way behind this year and need to catch up. I’m sure that will be a big part of my reading goals for this. Look for my Goals and Progress post coming at the start of the event. I will try to update it daily so check back on that post to see how I am doing.
I missed out on the last round because I wasn’t reading at all at the time, but I’m ready for this one. For all my blogging friends who will be participating in this I wish you all luck and I look forward to seeing what you have as your goals and how you all are doing. If you are thinking about participating in this for the first time I would plead with you and say just do it. It is a lot of fun even if you only participate a little bit.
