Bout of Books Read A Thon 5/14-5/20

All right all, I’m pumped. I didn’t get to participate in the past book blog community events because of bad real life timing, but I looked at the schedule and I think 5/14-5/20 is no crazier a week than normal, which means lots of time for reading and blogging! Please come join me!

All right, so I know that I should post goals, but I’m not sure exactly what vein they are supposed to be in, so I’ll post what I can think of here and would love suggestions for more that I should include!


  • Read at least 2 hours every day
  • Listen to audiobooks whenever driving (I’m sure I’ll have work that week)
  • Finish at least 2 books that week
  • Get at least one book from the Goodreads to-read list from the library
  • Spend at least 1 hour every day communicating with the community
  • Find 4 new blogs to follow

That’s all I can think of right now, but I might add more later >.> Who else is participating?  Any ideas for other good goals I should include?

  1. We’re so glad you’re joining us for this week of decadent reading fun!
    You’re goals are great, btw! I usually just set a hard book goal for myself and let the rest come as it may. You are making me reassess my strategy and I like that!

    • Haha, thanks! I’m nervous about setting a book goal since I am really bad at estimating how long a book is going to take me and don’t want to make it a stressful experience xD This way I can feel accomplished instead :D

  2. Audiobooks are so helpful when you have to drive to work! Are there any specific books you want to read during the read-a-thon?

    • I know! They are the best, especially when they involve talking dogs and a narrator who gives them each really cute voices xD

      I have some library books that I really need to get read before returning them! Beggars in Spain is going to be my go to book to read I think :)

    Those are some great goals! :) Meeting others is always one of my favourite parts

  4. You do have great goals. I just made a list of books and intend to plow through it. LOL! Good luck and have fun!

  5. Audiobooks are da bomb for driving! I second what Amanda said—IDC is a great audiobook series :)

    audio books are a great way to get in extra reading, better than waiting for a stop light. :) good luck & have fun! ~dixie

    I love how you did your goals :) Good luck!!


  16. Audiobooks are the easiest for me to get through ! I listen to them in the car or when I’m cleaning.

    • Yeah, the cleaning one is something I want to work on >.> I need to bust on an old cd player to do it though since my library audiobooks don’t let you rip them for some reason ;-)

    • Pretty good actually! Need to get in another 1/2 hour of reading to have completed that, but I’d say it was still pretty good for the first day + a full day of work huh?
