Goals, TBR, Progress/Tracking, Challenges, and Wrap-Up

Bout of BooksI’m here for Bout of Books 19, as usual! This May challenge is coming at a nice time because I have soooo many summertime ARCs to get ahead on. I also want to read a lot of owned books before I pack them up.

Check my small sign-up post here.

The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda Shofner and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, May 8th and runs through Sunday, May 14th 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 19 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team


As I mentioned, my biggest goals are twofold. I want to get ahead on ARCs of books being published in the summer and also read books from my shelves. I had my challenges last month to achieve both of those goals and did pretty well. I exceeded my ARC goal but didn’t quite meet my owned book goal. This Bout of Books will piggyback off of those challenge ideas! Specifically, I hope to start and/or finish 4 books during this week – only ones in those two categories.

One response to “Bout of Books 19

  1. I’m a football yeller as well!! 🙂 I’m a lifelong Steelers fan. I’d have the Panthers as my #2 team, as we moved to NC 5 years ago, but my Hubby is a rare Fl native so He’s a Bucs fan. Poor guy, though they are looking to rebound this year. 🙂 Awesome that you finally got to go to a game. I was as excited as well when I finally got to see the Steelers play, though not yet in Heinz Field (saw them play the Jags in Jacksonville, but at least I finally got to see them!) We’re also big baseball fans and were Rays fans and when we moved up here, we started following the Nats so we’re big Nats fans now, they are so good.

    Glad you had a great BoB! 🙂
