Bout of Books 9.0 Goals

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 6th and runs through Sunday, January 12th 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 9.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog.


I’m posting this very close to the wire with only four hours (by ET standards) left before the start of Bout of Books. But better late than never, so here goes!

  • Read everyday!
  • Participate in at least one challenge and/or Twitter chat
  • Comment at least once on a different blog every day during the week
  • Read at least two books from the ones listed below

I’ve had to make a slight change in plans, due to an extremely unfortunate computer malfunction. When I grab eARCs from NetGalley and Edelweiss, I use Adobe Editions to both download from the websites and upload to my NOOK. I recently moved the Adobe Editions file on my computer AND LOST EVERYTHING! I went to go re-download everything and two titles coming out this month had already been archived *book blogger sobs*

Not only will this hurt my reviewing percentage but I only download the titles that I desperately want to read since my personal TBR pile is so large. I’ve emailed the respective publicity departments but I’m not holding my breath…

Therefore, instead of reading these depressingly elusive ARCs:

I will have to read the library books that I just picked up today after I got out of work:

Don’t get me wrong, I can’t wait to read both my library books but I was looking forward to being a productive little book blogger and tackling some ARC reading this week. Oh well, maybe I’ll get some e-books in my email, bright and early Monday morning *crosses fingers* pretty please!


I suddenly realized that I still have both eARCs on my NOOK, huzzah! *tenderly strokes ereader*
