I’m joining Bout of Books 10

Bout of Books!

I’ve heard about it but somehow never thought about joining! But  since it’s a low-key thing, I’m gonna say Hello Bout of Books, count me in!

BoB10-200x200

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 12th and runs through Sunday, May 18th 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 10 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team

My goals are:
– to read for at least an hour a day
– instead of picking up the phone to check emails (again) or peek at Facebook or Twitter, do some reading, whether it be an e-book or a real book
– to complete at least two books

My pool:
Care and Management of Lies by Jacqueline Winspear
Singapore Noir
The Inventor’s Secret – Andrea Cremer
Behind the Beautiful Forevers: Life, Death, and Hope in a Mumbai Undercity – Katherine Boo (currently reading)
The Goldfinch – Donna Tartt
The Septembers of Shiraz – Dalia Sofer
Bitter in the Mouth – Monique Truong
The Crane Wife – Patrick Ness
