As I have been UBER behind on all things blogging, reading, and such I’ve decided to participate in Bout of Books. I can’t tell you how excited I am that I was reminded of this event. I participated it in once before, I believe, and, if I remember correctly, had a blast. So, I’m doing it again. I’m hoping to reboot my reading mind and get back on that reading horse I so loved (although I hate horses. I really really do. LONG story!).


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 11th and runs through Sunday, May 17th 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 13 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team



What would a readathon be without goals?!? This year I am hoping to read at least four to six books. Boy, do I have some good ones lined up already! Will I share that with you? Hmmm…..I think I may keep it a secret. You’ll just have to read the updates. 🙂

My page goal is between 100-200 pages a day; with at least two to three hours spent reading. Can I do this? I sure hope I can! I picked books I’m super excited to read.

I’ll hopefully be participating in challenges and updating daily, so be on the look out for some fun posts from me. I know it’s been a while. This is a good way for us to reconnect.

Until then, happy reading and see you tomorrow when it officially begins! I’ll hopefully be writing a better welcome post with my first book and more. Stay tuned!

And, for all you mothers out there, Happy Mother’s Day!
