Bout of Books ~ Goals

Bout of Books

Bout of Books is coming next week! BoB 10 was my first BoB and was a huge success for me. I am blessed with the time to read, a lot. I can sit around every day reading all day, and I do. So, my reading and my goals aren't typical of most people. I would much rather my life be different, and I could go out and do fun things, but I can't, so I enjoy my books. That being said, my goals are going to be pretty lofty. We'll see how I do.

With the last BoB RaT, I ended with these stats ~
  • I completed 4 BoB RaT Challenges
  • I read for 47 Hours
  • I completed 17 books
  • I read 4796 pages
  • I completed 7 novels, 2 novellas & 1 short story on my Kindle Fire
  • I listened to 7 audiobooks (the Lemony Snicket series)


I was, for this one, going to not worry about books and try to beat my page count, but I'm currently doing a team challenge at GoodReads, where it's all about the amount of books we read. The last 4 weeks have had me reading 10-12 books a week, this week I'm aiming for 15. So, instead, I'm not going to pay attention to page counts, and I'm going to go by books. So, here's to seeing if I can surpass last time!


My Bout of Books Goals

Time devoted to Reading 
  • Daily, except for updates, challenges, and time spent at GR challenge
GOAL
  • Complete at least TWENTY (20) books
  • Complete at least 5 challenges, if possible (I don't do photo ones)
  • Complete at least 2 series in which I only have 1 book left to read
Books to Read
  • I don't like to plan ahead, so my books will be chosen as I go

SOOOOOO looking forward to this RaT. I love visiting blogs as much as I love reading. I follow blogs only through Bloglovin', so if you follow me there, I'll follow you back. If you follow through something else, let me know you are following and I'll add you to my Bloglovin'. I don't use Twitter at ALL, so I won't be joining in any of the activity there. I look forward to finding more blogs I can follow.

    1. It's not too much of a stretch for me, especially lately. I've been reading 10-14 books a week, so it's just a bit more for me.
