May 12, 2013 Challenges 23

Yay it’s almost time for Bout of Books!! Woo hoo!!

Vintage Happy Dance

Tonight hundreds of book lovers will join in the Bout of Books week long read-a-thon! Even though it’s my 1st Bout of Books session I’m so darn excited!!! But I wanted to set a few goals for myself, just a few things to make sure I don’t fail, or flake, or get distracted by lint….


Socializing Goals:

* Participate in at least 6 of the 9 daily challenges.

(I suck at poems…you’ve been warned.)

*Participate in all the Twitter Chat’s!

* Tweet!

Reading Goals:

* I plan to read all week!

* Keep notes as I read and write reviews as I go.


Ok not all the books but these 10 definitely:

Bout of Books ReadaYep, I’m hoping to get through 10 books. I think I have a nice variety of genres to avoid the notorious “reading rut”, but luck is always appreciated!

My most important goal is to meet awesome people, have fun, and fondle strangers…like this:

      Thank you! I have a horrible habit of going overboard with my book buying lol. But at least I have some good ones for #BoutOfBooks!

      Thank you! I keep hearing about The Selection so I figured it was about time I jumped on the bandwagon lol. I hope you enjoy your re-read and The Elite!

      Those were my exact words a few months ago when I found them on Goodreads! And the covers are so pretty!!

      I’m trying to go into each of these books with happy thoughts, obviously that didn’t work so well with The Selection but I hope that’s the only one!

      Thank you! It took FOREVER! And don’t be impressed (or distressed!) I just couldn’t bare the thought of my first #BoutOfBooks read being a DNF. 🙁

    Great poem! lol And it’s too bad that you’re not really enjoying The Selection, it’s seriously one of my favorite books. Not because it’s spectacular writing, but it’s kind of a guilty pleasure, like reality tv! haha

      Thanks ma’am! I’m horrible at poems but I’m actually a bit proud here lol. And The Selection wasn’t “light it on fire” horrible, it was just really frustrating! But I’ve finished it and once I gather my thoughts you’ll hear about it lol.
