Bout of Books 21

I am doing this after so, so long. But I really need something good to happen in my life. The new year hasn’t been kind so far. So I am going to do something about it. And this is it!

For the uninitiated, here you go.

Bout of Books

The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda Shofner and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, January 8th and runs through Sunday, January 14th 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 21 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team

Hop on and join me. Let’s read away.

Wicked Winter Readathon: Wrap Up

Alright, I participated in this Readathon during the weekend (Saturday and Sunday) and managed to read

Can you keep a secret by Sophie Kinsella (400 pages)
The Last beginning by Rachel Firasek (107 pages)
and I started Last chance beauty queen by Hope Ramsay (20 pages)

Total pages read – 527 (I think that’s not bad, right?)

I had lots of fun doing all the challenges.

This week I am challenging myself to finish off some classics, I am choosing to ignore my poor, neglected textbooks. 😦
