Bout of Books Read-a-Thon!


Bout of Books Read-a-Thon!


The Bout of Books Read-a-Thon is something fun I thought I'd participate in as my husband is off traveling for business.  August 22nd to August 28th.   Hosted by Amanda @ On a book Bender

So the goal is to read as much as I can whenever I can between 12:00am 8/22 and 11:59pm 8/28.  The pressure is on - eat, read, sleep, read, dream of reading, work, read, more work and read.  There just isn't enough time for reading! I won't even be able to craft this week!  Luckily whenever the hubby is away I tend to lose my drive to create.  I mean I have control of the house - I could make my crafting mess anywhere without being griped at to clean it up - and what do I do? mope around and watch anime and read.
  • There will be challenges and giveaways for people that want to join in on the read-a-thon.  Sign ups are on her blog from the linky I posted above.
Books that I plan to read - I'm limiting it to 3 because some girl friends of mine are coming over saturday to hang out and have slumber party like we are 13 again. That is going to be awesome - vegging out, watching chick flicks maybe we'll even turn the whole living room floor into one big pile of comforters, blankets and pillows.  I should break out the ghost story book!

Books currently reading I plan to finish (maybe tonight) this week: (I keep that currently reading widget on my sidebar too)
I plan to read any of the following:  - *rifling through the piles of books for another likely candidate*
  • Return to Exile by E.J. Patten (advance reader copy - just arrived today!)
Of course I won't actually be able to fit all of those in this week because I'm rather busy - but hey I'll give it the old heave ho.  I'll just update my progress via my Goodreads profile.  Sometimes I'll pipe up on twitter with the rest of the read-a-thoners with the #boutofbooks hashtag. If I remember I'll post comments to my own blog.

Read read read! Course I'll probably spare some time for my painting or plushies - since I have a view that are almost finished - and I keep promising to myself I'll finish "this weekend" - and I say that every week! But they are almost done I swear!!
