Bout Of Books 7.0 Goals! {UPDATED}

Bout of Books

Time Devoted to Reading:

I will try to read a minimum of 4 hours a day!

  • Everytime I go out for a cigarette ( I know, yuck)
  • TV time is going to be cut in half!
  • When Hubby gets home from work I go read immediately unless I am already reading! (duh)
  • Thursday is my TV exception (Grey’s Anatomy season finale and The Office Series finale)

I will be reading all week, everyday, obviously!

My Goals

  • Read books that have been sitting there, sad and unread for a while.
  • Read 3 books!
  • Maybe read an adult fiction book?
  • Read my library books!
  • Participate in 4 Challenges
  • Write notes on the books I’ll be reading.
  • Participate in all 3 Twitter Chat
  • Spend a span of 7 hours doing nothing but reading. In a row. (twitter is ok)
  • Sequels!
  • FIND MY ONLINE BOOK/ BOOK BLOGGING BFF!!!!!! WHERE ARE YOU!?!?!?!

  1. Pulse by Patrick Carman ( Library book)
  2. City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare (sequel)
  3. Starters by Lissa Price (sad and unread)
  4. The Assasin’s Curse by Cassandra Rose Clarke (Library book)
  5. Crossed by Ally Condie ( Sequel AND sad and unread)

  1. I’m just the opposite on hubby time. As soon as he gets home I’m likely to stop reading all night unless the book is amazing.

    And OMG yes, Grey’s Anatomy finale. So excited!

  2. Oh, I loved The Assassin’s Curse and can’t wait to read. City of Ashes and Ally Condie! Happy bout of books

  3. So smart of you to have the foresight to cut TV time in half. I didn’t think to do that, which I should have done, but it was so HARD with season finales this week!

    Glad to see you managed to do some challenges and some reading as well! Good luck with the remaining few hours of the readathon!

I love reading comments and I'll try to reply to them all.
