Welcome to 2015!
Today was my first official day on my new adventure and not going back to work at my (new) old job. I felt like I did a lot of running around and a lot of snow shoveling and a bit of celebrating for my boy's birthday. I have such a huge long list of things that I have been neglecting that I plan to play major catch-up this week. BUT, not without a good chunk of reading! In fact, I have signed up for another round of Bout of Books and I couldn't have asked for better timing.
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 5th and runs through Sunday, January 11th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 12 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team
During this round, they are not requiring us to set goals, but I like to give myself something to work towards. Here is what is on my pile for the week . . .
Two books (my current reads) are not pictured: The Scorch Trials by James Dashner and The Ape House by Sara Gruen (audio). I may also try to dabble in the book that I have been reading with my children, but have taken a longer break than expected - Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. And, last but not least, I am hoping to spend some good time in catching up with all the blogs that I have been missing out on the last few weeks. My Feedly Reader currently stands at 619 posts. I'm hoping to get that down to a more manageable number by the end of the week and comment along the way.
I will also be working on my usual monthly/yearly wrap-up posts to go live later this week and maybe even early next week. I usually have them published at this point, but life has been so chaotic that I simply have not yet had the time.
Are you participating in Bout of Books 12? What are you looking forward to reading this week?
