Bout of Books 4.0

2012, Bout-of-Books, Read-a-thon

BoutOfBooks-Button-300x200

It’s time for Bout of Books again!! And I can’t believe I’m doing it, considering I’ve been in a reading slump. But what better way to kick that to the curb! :) So here’s what I have planned. Oh, and if you need the details about this very awesome read-a-thon, go HERE. Also! I like Amanda’s layout for this post, so I always use it for my own post. Thank you, Amanda!!

PLEASE NOTE! This post will have ALL of my daily updates, so come back and check it out!

Time Devoted to Reading

I will read at every available moment, all. week. long. I will also listen to an audiobook during my commute and if possible, while working.

My Goals/Books to Read

I’m going to try and read 3 books and listen to 1 audiobook. And here they are:

As I mentioned before, I’ll be doing my updates here on this same post, so check back. (I’ll post a link at the top of my sidebar for easy access.) I will also update on Goodreads, which will send updates to Twitter, and also on Twitter itself, using both hashtags #boutofbooks and occasionally #insixwords.

    Good luck!! I take the bus to work, and it’s a good 45 minutes, so I try to read as much as I can during it, but maybe I’ll try audio books in the future too :)

  2. Jacinda @ Reading Housewives

    Did I mention to you that I read the 1st 3 Fools Gold books?! Well I did :) good luck this week!

  3. Rebecca Rodriguez

    I haven’t read any of your picks but I want to read Where I Belong. I hope you enjoy them :) You can do it!

  4. Shannon

    Yay! I’m excited you are going to participate too!  I need to get into audiobooks more.  I am excited to hear if you like it.  Good Luck!

    Great Goals :D Ambitious with your schedule too!! Where I Belong looks wonderful, I may have to break down and snag a copy!!

    I’m so excited for this.  I think it is going to be a blast.  I started listening to audiobooks on my commute and ended up loving it.  I kept taking lunch breaks in my car outside the frozen yogurt shop so I could listen some more. :)

    Oh I want to read Something Like Normal so bad, I have heard nothing but great things!

    Silence…sigh what to say about that book or lack of moving the storyline forward. It is a filler book to the extreme and the first half of the book is a repeat of the first two books. Fitzpatrick was just trying to make more money off the series.

    I hope you meet your goals! Happy reading!

    I love that you set goals for yourself.  My goal is just to get through 1 book in a week.  2 if I have nothing planned for the weekend, hahaha.  Work + gym classes + boyfriend + life is getting in the way of reading.  Boo-hisssss!

    You can do it!  You can do it ALL NIGHT LONG!!!

    Wow, your blog is so beautiful!  I’ve never wandered over here before, it’s gorgeous.  Just dropping by to cheer you on (*waves pompoms manically*) and giggle over yesterday’s ‘In Six Words’.  I think Monday pretty much beat me too – but ssssh, if we’re very quiet about it Tuesday might not hear and we MIGHT stand a shot of making a decent stand today!  Hmmm, I do apologise, I know it’s a good read-a-thon when I start rambling… :)

    I really love the Hush, Hush series – if you don’t mind me asking, when do you listen to audio books? I hear a lot of people do in their cars. My father-in-law does at work.
