Bout of Books 4.0 Goals and Info (#boutofbooks)

Bout of Books Read-a-Thon


Another round of Bout of Books is upon us my friends and I’m quite excited.  I’ve participated in the first 3 with varying degrees of success (or failure).  Whichever side of the fence I managed to land on I still had a lot of fun and met a lot of cool peeps.  Next week will be crazy busy for me but, I’m going to try to get as much reading in as possible.  Even if that means ignoring my boyfriend for a week.  (Sorry honey!)


Some of my goals include:

  • Attempting to complete AT LEAST 1 book
  • Meet, visit and support as many read-a-thoners as possible
  • Participate in AT LEAST 1 Twitter Chat

Yeah, I know.  It’s a short list but, I hate setting the bar so high that I end up face planting.


Books I’m hoping to finish:

Hunting the Shadows  In the Path of Falling Objects  Plague Town

Hope to see you there.  I promise it’ll be fun.




  1. Go Jen! You can DO IT! I have faith in you. Also, you'd better try to attend at least one Twitter chat, because I'm going to try to land myself in Twitter jail. :)

  2. @Amanda - Thanks for the support my friend. LMAO! Twitter jail you say?! Well then count me in FOR SURE. ;-)

  3. Realistic, stress free goals are always better. The most important part is to have fun and help land Amanda in jail... evidently. Lol! Good luck!

  4. Cool! I also want to participate in at least one twitter chat!

  5. It's good to set the bar low, then when you surpass it it makes you feel more accomplished. Have fun and good luck with your goals :)

  6. Oooo! Plague town looks interesting :)

    Good Luck with Bout of Books!

    -Jac @ For Love and Books

  7. I'm a vague goal maker so I can't fail. I didn't say how many books I wanted to complete at all, haha. Good luck!

  8. haha I am with Jac and saying ooo Plague Town. I have heard some interesting things about it, cant wait to see what you think...I mean who can hate anything thats been quoted as "buffy meets walking dead" right!

  9. I've set the bar quite low aswell. I plan on reading two books, one of which is a manga that I could probably finish in a couple hours hehehe...
    But really I just want to have fun with it. Best of luck to you!

  10. I have Plague town on my list too. White Horse, Plague Town and Jenny Pox....bring it on...grrrrr.
