I’ve been debating whether or not I wanted to sign up for Bout of Books 15 for a couple of weeks, but I had to. I always have an absolute blast, especially with the Twitter chats, and even though I’m not sure how much time I’ll have for reading, that’s not what matters. As long as I’m reading a little bit, that’s what matters. Don’t know what Bout of Books is?
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 4th and runs through Sunday, January 10th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 15 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team
I’m keeping my TBR and goals super low this year so there’s no stress AT ALL. If I read more than this, GREAT. If I don’t, that’s cool too. My goals are pretty much non-existant. Basically, my whole outlook for this Bout of Books is HAVE FUN NOTHING ELSE MATTERS. 🙂
- Continue my reread of the illustrated Harry Potter book, one chapter a day
- SIEGE AND STORM by Leigh Bardugo
- One single issue comic a day
- Read for at least 30 minutes every day.
- If I can’t read that long, don’t worry about it!
- Have fun.
- If I can, do one Twitter chat and one challenge.
Monday & Tuesday
(I’m combining the updates for these two days because I forgot to update on Monday)
Pages read today: 166
Total number of pages: 166 (87 of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children; 44 of Siege and Storm; 35 pages of the illustrated Harry Potter)
Read today: Two chapters of the illustrated Harry Potter; Siege and Storm; Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children
Total number of books I’ve read: Parts of 3
Challenges participated in: I did the Would You Rather challenge hosted by Lori at Writing My Own Fairytale.
Notes about today: So I haven’t really read that much because my mind has been a little preoccupied. But I’m finally getting into the swing of it and getting more reading done. The best part though? I’m not stressing about it.

I love your goals so much! Good luck.
I love your goals, so chilled! I’m going to aim to read about one hour a day! I also can’t wait to buy the HP illustrated book, it looks GORGEOUS.
Good luck with your BoB reading! I’m hoping for an hour a day as well but didn’t want to force it.
I made a last minute decision to participate as well, even though I don’t have much time to read. Like you said, it’s just always so much fun! Good luck with your goals! (I’m going to have to get my hands on a copy of the illustrated HP1, by the way :O)
Good luck to you too! I hope we both get a little time for reading every day. 🙂
(IT’S SO PRETTY!!)
I love your goals. Bout of Books is my favorite. Good luck and have fun! I can’t believe it starts tomorrow again.
Good luck to you too! SEVEN books! I hope you do it! 🙂
Good luck! I’m not participating in Bout of Books this time, but it is so much fun. I think you can definitely achieve those goals 🙂
Bout of Books is always so much fun so I’m glad you decided to join in! Good luck during the readathon!
Thank you! I always have fun – I think this is my SIXTH time?! Good luck to you too!
