Bout of Books 14

Bout of Books 14I’ve seen this going around so I decided to participate because I’d like to know how many books I can get through in a week if I don’t have to work, and since I’m on vacation, the timing is perfect.

I usually shy away from reading challenges because they seem stressful, especially when other areas of my life are chaotic but Bout of Books is supposed to be fun and I have the time so why not. If you’re new to this as I am, here’s some info on the event:

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, August 17th and runs through Sunday, August 23rd 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 14 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team

I’ll probably not participate in the challenges and just observe from the sidelines. Anyways, here’s what I’ll attempt to read and my goal. I doubt I’ll get through all the material listed here but I’m restricting myself to read only books from this list.
