Bout of Books 7.0
What is it? Direct from the hosts:
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, May 13th and runs through Sunday, May 19th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure, and the only reading competition is between you and your usual number of books read in a week. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 7.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team
So... goals. I plan to finish my mystery book, and read some of the following: Shatter Me, Days of Blood and Starlight, Unravel Me, Eleanor and Park, Unearthly, Sing Me Home, Meant to Be, and Elsewhere.
As far as how many, I have to keep it small at 3-4 books. ;) I will update this post daily with my progress below and I'll do a mid- and end-week recap post.
Happy Monday and happier reading.

Thoughts: I had work and date night with the hubby last night, so I didn't much reading done at all. :( But it was time well spent anyway. :)
Saturday & Sunday
NONE :( :( :( I got so busy over the weekend that I had no time for reading.
