The Last Update

Books Read: 4
Total pages read overall: 934
Books Listened To: 0.5 (I only had half of it left to go when the read-a-thon started)
Total time listened overall: 4 hrs, 43 mins

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:
