The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, January 6th and runs through Sunday, January 12th 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 9.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team
As I mentioned above, I do have plans the latter half of the week, so I anticipate the first half to be more productive. Either way, I leave you with a peek at all the books that I'm hoping to get to. Most of these are library books that I need to finish before their due dates and ones that I want to finish so I can concentrate on my own TBR mountain. The only exception is The Frozen Deep, which is one of my very own that I received as a gift just in time for Wilkie in Winter!
The Frozen Deep by Wilkie Collins
Fairest #1: Wide Awake by Bill Willingham
Jack of Fables #8: The Fulminate Blade by Bill Willingham
Jack of Fables #9: The End by Bill Willingham
Stitches by David Small
The Wednesday Sisters by Meg Waite Clayton
The Millionaire Next Door by Thomas J. Stanley and William D. Danko
I also hope to get some good listening in for my current audiobook (as long as I can still get it back since it just expired AGAIN!).
Ready Player One by Ernest Cline
I will post one update here on the blog, probably on Thursday, but will also be sharing updates via Instagram, Twitter, and Tumblr throughout the week.
Are you participating in Bout of Books? What are your goals for reading during the week?
