Bout of Books Read-a-thon!

I completely forgot about the Bout of Books Read-a-thon until the reminder I set popped up this morning.  I probably won't get as much reading done as I would like as this is going to be a busy week for me.  I also won't be getting any reading done on Saturday the 19th as my best friend is getting married that day.

I will do all of my updating on here and on twitter.

The Read-a-thon runs from 5/14 thru 5/20.  To sign up for the read-a-thon click here



My Goals

  • Read every day except Saturday (Best Friend's Wedding)
  • Read at least 3 books
  • Participate in some of the challenges

Books To Read

All books are Kindle editions.

30% Completed
Mini Challenge: Completed
Notes: I didn't do too bad today.  I hate leaving books unfinished before I start read-a-thons so I decided to finish The Secret Circle: The Captive before starting my read-a-thon tbr pile.  I wish I had enjoyed The Captive especially since the show has been canceled.  I think I just don't like L.J. Smith's writing as I didn't enjoy The Vampire Diaries either.  I hope tomorrow I can finish Life Among the Dead which I have been enjoying; however Diablo III releases tomorrow and I have been waiting a really long time to play it.  Its going to be hard to balance things tomorrow.

Wrap Up
It was a very busy week so I was only able to read 2.5 books. Definitely not my best record. I still had fun reading and doing the challenges. I didn't get to interact much with other participants though.

    1. Thank you! I think all the books I selected are indie books. I have had them for a while. I selected some for other read-a-thons but wasn't able to get to them. Hopefully I can finish a few this week.
