Bouts of Books 9.0: Starts Today

This is the first day of the read-a-thon, my wrap up for today will go up tomorrow. First day of the read-a-thon where you repost your goals and make sure everyone knows so they can participate. Read-a-thons are suppose to be low stress and I don't actually really stress about them, which is surprising to me, but I do aim my goals high, very high sometimes, but that's how I like it.

As writing this, I've already read ten books this year, the beginning of the year always kicks me into action and I'm so motivated and it's always fantastic and I'm so glad this read-a-thon is so early in the new year.

So, I'm actually going to tweak some of my goals, because I didn't feel like I actually listed them very well in that first post.

  • Read 200 - 300 pages a day
  • Finish at least one book a day
  • Read as much as I possibly can but also don't stress about it, one book a day is completely doable.
And the books I'm planning on haven't really changed, but I'm also surrounded by books so I might just end up picking one up at any point and reading it, we'll have to see how it goes. 

If you're participating, I wish you the best of luck, and if you're not but you might want to, then check out the Bout of Books blog and twitter. And if you want to track my progress aside from these daily updates, there's my twitter and goodreads.


  1. Wow, so jealous you've read 10 books this year. I'm still reading my first and it's a chunkster - being close to 600 pages. I'm hoping to finish it today and push through some other, quicker books. Good luck with all of your goals!

    1. This will not continue, but new year and everything. I've got a couple giant books waiting for me to read, too.
