Bout of Books 9.0 Sign-Up and Goals

I was totally undecided about signing up for this read-a-thon until today. It's just that I do work all next week. But I've decided why the hell not? I'll read when I can. Participate in any challenges whenever I can. And just have fun. Which is the point.
So here's 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, 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

For my goals, I'm going to try and read four books. I think that's realistic. And I've decided to go with a few review books as I really need to get caught up. So here they are:

And We Stay by Jenny Hubbard
Not A Drop to Drink by Mindy McGinnis

Let me know if you guys are signed up too. Good luck to anyone that is!

Happy reading!



  1. Yay! I'm so glad you decided to sign up, Brittany! :D
    I've picked 4 books to read as well. Ooh, I'll definitely be looking forward to seeing what you think of Ruby Red and Not A Drop to Drink!
    Good luck! :D

    1. Thanks Sam! Halfway through and I'm doing any better than I would in a normal week. But It's been quite a bit more busier than I expected. But it's still fun to be participating.
      I started Not A Drop to Drink and was extremely bored. So I put it down and am reading something else. I'll definitely try to finish it this month though.
      Good luck to you as well! :)
