Bout of Books: Goals and Updates (This page only)

This is my last week off and I am already planning on doing a whole lot of reading to relax. I came across Bout of Books read-a-thon earlier and I knew I had to participate. I’ve actually never done one of these, but I’ve wanted to in the past like nobody’s business. I blame my work schedule, it uses up every last bit of my energy reserves, being a full-time nanny is exhausting! Since I’m off this week though… 😉

BoB9.0-200x200

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 6th and runs through Sunday, January 12th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure, and the only reading competition is between you and your usual number of books read in a week. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 9.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team

I went ahead and used the template they provided for us. I don’t want to spam this blog with Read-A-Thon updates, so for the daily updates, I will utilize this post only.  Oh and I want to apologize now for the excessive use of colors, I know they can be a pain to read. I just thought it’d be colorful fun for the read-a-thon. Note to BoB visitors: My posts are not normally this vibrant 🙂 Also, normal yellow was way too hard to read so I changed it to this mustardish color. So excited to get started!

Books: For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund! Loved it!! 🙂
Notes: I started and finished a book! I figured out the real problem– I wasn’t in the mood for a contemporary. Once I started For Darkness Shows the Stars, I couldn’t stop.
