#BoutOfBooks Starting Line and Tracking Post Fall 2016

#BoutOfBooks Starting Line and Tracking Post Fall 2016

Divider

I haven’t been able to participate in Bout Of Books in SUCH A LONG TIME! Lately it has fallen when either I am out-of-town or in the middle of a work project. However, this week I am GOLDEN. Granted I am still in a reading slump so I am going to be doing all rereads! From the Bout Of Books Gals: 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 22nd and runs through Sunday, August 28th 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 17 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team Starting Line I am still reading/listening to The Stand (43%) so that will be my starting book 🙂 It might even be my only book this week but at over 1000 pages that seems perfectly reasonable. Monday: Read a bit of The Stand (now at 50%) 100 pages Tuesday: Read a bit more of […]

Granted I am still in a reading slump so I am going to be doing all rereads! I am going to aim for 3 books maybe 4 depending on which series I decide to try (thinking Bailey Cates since I have her newest one to read too).

Dewey’s #ReadAThon Hour 10 #Challenge: Character Road Trip

Dewey’s #ReadAThon Hour 10 #Challenge: Character Road Trip

Divider

Welcome to the Hour 10 Challenge: Character Road Trip! Since I am currently driving from Texas to Indiana this is perfect. I am listening to audiobooks and doing my check-ins via Instagram. I thought this would be a PERFECT challenge because every person loves a good road trip right? Here is what you need to do: Pick a character that you would like to road trip with Tell me 3 destinations that you would hit   For me it would be Jane from Pride & Prejudice (I think she and I would make fab friends). We would totally drive from New York (catch a reading at Lady Jane’s Salon) then head to Denver (have wine at BookBar) and end up in Culver City CA (visiting The Ripped Bodice). We would of course stop at a lot of places on the way but these would be our 3 major stops. You can either comment here with your choices, add to your check-in (just leave a link in the comment), and/or tweet me with your choices. This is open to anyone 18 and over. Hopefully you are participating in the ReadAThon and having fun.  Just fill out the giveaway below to enter! […]
