Last year I didn’t read nearly as much as I wanted to, but rather than feeling defeated I am taking the New Year as a chance to try again. So I’m jumping in to 2014 by joining in my first ever Read-a-Thon.
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. – From the Bout of Books team
I have also decided to try completing my very first annual reading challenge – to read a book by an author of each letter of the alphabet. I’m doing this as part of the group Penpal Readers on Goodreads.
I’m hoping this year I will be able to get this blog properly off the ground with more regular posting – please let me know if there’s anything you would like to see.
