Bout of Books 13 | May 11th - 17th (& goals)

This should of gone up last week but it didn't. So - Bout of Book 13 is happening starting the 11th of May, midnight in your time zone, to the 17th of May, also midnight in your time zone. And I am very excited, BoB is pretty much my favorite read-a-thon - week long, twitter chats, so much fun.

The official blurb:
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, May 11th and runs through Sunday, May 17th 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 13 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog

So I hope you're all planning on joining! A week of reading, even if you can't just sit and read for seven days, I hope you can try and read more the usual, participate in some of the twitter chats (one of my favorite parts about this read-a-thon).

I'm not sure about my personal reading plan, but I did just get Marvel Unlimited so there will definitely be some Marvel Comics - mostly I'll just count them in their trades (about five issues, normally), as long as I can, makes everything easier. I've also got some single issues to read, though. And then the actual books, I'm not sure on anything this time around, obviously this read-a-thon snuck up on me so we're winging it.

My main goals are to take part in all three twitter chats, read, have fun, visit blogs (and leave comments, comments, I'm getting better at this again but whew that hiatus / the not really blogging this has brought me back to being pretty bad at it. I'm trying). So do you have any specific goals? Are you taking part? Let me know so I can keep up with you during the week!

I'll be posting updates here daily, and a day behind - Monday's update goes up on Tuesday and so on, how it normally goes. However, I'll also be on twitter, goodreads, and instagram.
