Joining Bout of Books Read-a-Thon

This past weekend I finished 2 books. Which is how many books I’d love to read a week. I’m sure 2 books in one weekend was a fluke. I just discovered the Bout of Books Read-a-thon from Jayla of Lady Blue Jay. It looks like a great way to meet some new bloggers and cross a couple of books off my list.

Bout of Books Read-a-Thon


Bout of Books starts tomorrow 8/13 and runs until Sunday, 8/19.  For this week, here’s what I hope to accomplish:


  • Comment on at least 5 participating blogs a day
  • Read and/or finish at least 2 books. I have a couple of books that I’m less than 80 pages in. They’ve been languishing on my desk for a while. Time to finish them! I’ll probably sneak in reading time throughout the day as I’m wrangling my kids
  • Connect with those participating via the #boutofbooks hashtag on Twitter
My Book List (in no particular order). I may not read all of these but I’m a Libra, I like having choices.
Updates: I’ll share most of my reading progress on Twitter and Goodreads. I’ll try to do at least one mid-week and one at towards the end of the read-a-thon to update you all on my progress.
Will you join me? While you’re here, I hope you’ll join me for our first From Left to Write Twitter chat. You can even win prizes, just RSVP!
