Bout of Books 14: Sign-Up Post

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 17th and runs through Sunday, August 23rd in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 14 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team

It's Bout of Books time again! Since it's been exactly one month since my last post and I've really been wanting to get back into some semblance of blogging again, I thought it would be fun to jump back in with a read-a-thon. Also, I have a giant stack of graphic novels out from the library which are perfect for this kind of event. I actually read one already today since I started it at 430 AM while feeding my son -- it was pretty short, so I then finished it while eating my own breakfast.

My goal is simple -- I want to squeeze in more reading time than in a typical week -- this is, of course, after the necessities of childcare, work, and things like feeding myself and showering are taken care of. Ideally, I would like to read (or at least start!) one novel in addition to the graphic novels, but that might be a little overambitious -- we shall see how the week goes.

I don't plan on doing lots of updates or challenges since I really want to focus on the reading. But, I will make sure to check in at the end of the week to see how things went.

Good luck and happy reading to anyone else participating!
