Bout of Books 8.0 - Goals and Updates

Bout of Books

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, August 19th and runs through Sunday, August 25th 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 8.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team.

Last time I participated in BoB, I stated that I wouldn't have a set reading list next time around.  It also happens that for a large part of Bout of Books 8.0 I won't be reading as I'll be flitting about in Amsterdam for three days - changes are high that I'll be buying far more books than reading books ;)

So this time I'm just winging it, and will only be updating from Monday until Thursday. My updates will be posted here!

If you are participating, let me know so I can drop by and see what your goals are!

Aaaaand I completely forgot to update Monday.  So I'll just combine it all today (Tuesday)
Books Completed: Into the Darkest Corner by Elizabeth Haynes (346 pages read)
Books in Progress: The Trouble with Flirting by Claire LaZebnik (24 pages read)
Books read so far: 1
Pages read so far: 370

No update for Wednesday either.  I'm not doing that well this time around ;)

Thursday 22-8-13
Books Completed: 1
Books in Progress: Human Remains by Elizabeth Haynes (208 pages)
Pages read so far: 578

I'm off to Amsterdam tomorrow, so I won't get much reading done - but lots of book chat!


  1. I wish I could join but I have no days off work at all this week, so my reading goal for my week is quite low compared to regular weeks!

    Have a great time in Amsterdam!

  2. I'm doing Bout of Books again although the week looks very different than I thought it would when I signed up. We'll see where I end up at the end of the week.

  3. Oh wow have fun in Amsterdam!! haha I wouldn't be doing this if I were going to Amsterdam! Good luck!

  4. Have fun in Amsterdam ^^ and i hope you will find books to your liking there ^^
