Bout of Books Read-a-thon 6.0 Goals

Bout of Books Read-a-Thon
It's almost Bout of Books time! This will be my third time taking part in this read-a-thon, 4.0 was spectacular for me, 5.0 not so much. But as this one is in the New Year and I want to make a good dent in my to read pile I expect to do better.

What is Bout of Books?
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 7th and runs through Sunday, January 13th 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 6.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books 6.0 team

I know that I will be back at college by the time the read-a-thon starts so to make a goal of reading a book a day may be unreachable but I think by the end of the week as long as I've finished 7 books I'll be happy, this means including finishing off books that I'm already part way through at the start of the read-a-thon as well as books read from start to finish during this time. I hope that I wont leave a book unfinished too which'll help keep things tidy. Outside of reading I'd like to visit a minimum of 10 blogs a day, take part in at least one of the twitter chats and visit every single blog on the wrap up posts like I did during 4.0 - it took well over a week to fit everyone in and no doubt there will be even more members taking part this time but I'd still like to do it again!


  1. I still have to figure out all of my goals, but I think this will be one of the best ones yet, especially with it being in the new year!

    1. I really hope it'll help get me ahead of whatever goal I set!

  2. Looking forward to see which books you're reading (: Good luck and have fun!

  3. I know what you mean about taking it easy. Good luck :)

  4. Good luck with your reading goals- seven books is a good number!

  5. Visiting everybody is ALWAYS a big task - I've tried for several different events now and never quite managed it. But I figure as long as you visit as many as you can, that's better than nothing, right?

  6. I know what you mean about visiting everyone. It's so worth it though. Good luck with the rest of your goals and have fun!

  7. Good goals! Best of luck with the read-a-thon and with your aims - I think 7 books is pretty impressive :-)

  8. This is my first time participating in the BoB Read-a-thon, it's been fun visiting other participants and checking out their goals for the week. Good Luck and best of all, have fun!

  9. Good luck reading & I hope you have fun during the read-a-thon. I just finished school, so I know how hard it is to read a lot while doing assignments, readings for class, exams, etc.

  10. Good luck reaching your goals!
