Bout of Books 15 | Sign Up, TBR, Updates

Bout of Books 15I’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. 🙂

TBR

  • 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

GOALS

  • 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.

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.

  1. 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)
