ATTENTION CHALLENGE PARTICIPANTS

2015 Editions of the Color Coded , Mount TBR and Vintage Mystery Bingo Challenges--as well as Read It Again, Sam (due to popular demand)-- have been posted. I am also introducing my newest brain-child: Super Book Password. Please check it out!

As in the past, I will post sidebar links for sign-up posts as well as review headquarters once the new year begins.

Bout of Books Read-A-Thon Goals

Bout of Books Read-a-Thon



It's that time again--the Bout of Books Read-A-Thon, created by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and now hosted on its very own blog HERE.  You can also follow the fun on Twitter using the hashtag #boutofbooks or following @boutofbooks.

I nearly missed this round of Bout of Books--but thanks to Lit Addicted Brit, here I am. I signed up once and somehow managed to delete my Goal Post.  Here it is again--as close as possible to my original post.


My Goals
*To read as many books as possible and kick-start my reading pace again.  
*To read at least 5 and hopefully 7 books by the time I'm done.
*To have fun!
*To attack the teetering pile of TBR books in the back room and knock out some challenge books.

The Last Escape (aka: Dishonour Among Thieves) by E. C. R. Lorac

Yey - so glad that you spotted it in time :-)

I can't wait to just get stuck in now! My list is pretty modest compared to a lot of people's but I'm definitely looking forward to spending a whole week prioritising reading! If I get through three books, I'll be happy.

Good luck in getting through your fabulous looking list!
