This is my first Read-a-thon with this blog and I’m doing a happy dance. With my past blog I participated in Bout of Books three times and really enjoyed it. The 24 and 48 hour ones seem a little too intense for me, so I’m thankful for this week one.
If you are interested in the Bout of Books challenge here’s an overview from the hosts:
“The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda Shofner and Kelly Rubidoux Apple. 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. There are challenges, Twitter chats, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 27 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog.”
We don’t have to put forth a TBR but this is my goal for the week:
1 Mysterious Affair at Styles – Agatha Christie
2 Death on the Nile – Agatha Christie
3 This is How You Lose the Time War – Amal El-Mohtar
4 The Strange Bird – Jeff Vandermeer
If I happen to finish with time to spare (the likelihood is low), I have some graphic novels waiting. The total page numbers between the four books above is 987. I think that’s a nice number to come back to!
Hopefully some of you will join me on the Jan 6th!
