Bout of Books Readathon Goals


Bout of Books begins in just a few short days – yay! I’ll be in Texas for the first three days of the event (work trip), so I plan on doing most of my reading during the second half of the week. I hope everyone is getting as excited as I am! Below you’ll find some of my reading goals as well as my list of possible reads. Please don’t think I’ll be reading every book on my list. I’m not that ambitious. I just wanted plenty of options and variety.

My Bout of Books Goals
1. Read at least 5 books.
2. Read a book from my 2014 TBR Pile Challenge list.
3. Follow at least 10 new bloggers on social media.
4. Comment on at least 10 blogger pages during the event.
5. Participate in at least 3 challenges and/or Twitter chats.

  1. I’ve got a lot of books I’m excited for, though I won’t be making it through all of them. Other than reading, going to as many Twitter chats as I can… they’re always my favorite part of Bout of Books! Good luck and have fun!


  2. This is my second Bout of Books and my goal is just to do better than I did during my first one. Which shouldn’t be too hard considering I read less than 2 books. lol

    I just finished Looking for Alaska and really liked it. And, Ethan Frome is one of my all time favorite books!
