Bout of Books #7.0

Bout of Books

For those that don't know what Bout of Books is... here you go...

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 13th and runs through Sunday, May 19th 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 7.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team


^^^ Erm.. yeah... what they said. I am all over this readathon thing this time (having missed yet another 24 hour readathon due to a lack of twitter on my phone). Whilst I can not dedicate all of the time that I wish I could, I shall read as much as possible. My aims are rather unusual this time round- I have a currently reading list on goodreads.com that includes several half-finished books. I just want to complete them. At this precise moment, these include Pride and Prejudice, The Memory Collector, The Dark Glamour and Nobody's Angel. There are probably more, but this is a pretty good start to a loooong list.

By midnight on the 19th of May, I plan to have got to the point where those half read books cluttering up my conscience are Gone, read, Done and Dusted. Anything extra is a bonus. Blogging might be nice too.
Yay, Bout of Booooooooks!

Free ice cream and beer for all who comment! Ok, that's a promise I can't keep. Maybe a hug if we ever meet in the real world... or just leave your twitter handle and I'll send you a virtual one? Maybe.
Anyway, I'm grateful that you took the time to comment. You are indeed mighty witty.
