Bout of Books
Goals: Started out being happy with 2 books read, bumped it up to 4, ended up finishing 6 books. Success!

Overall: It was fun! I don’t feel like I was as social as I wanted to be but I did visit some blogs and meet some cool people. I’m not sure if I’ll do the one in January but I would like to do it again sometime!

Bout of Books 8.0 Goals

Bout of Books

Time Devoted to Reading

I’m not sure how much time I’ll be able to devote to reading. Some things came up, so I’m going to read when I can and hope everything works out.

My Goals

Since I’m not completely sure about my week anymore, I have no idea. I was going to shoot for 4 books, but that seems high now. I think I’ll be happy with 2 and happier if I manage more. I definitely want to read Scarlet, though. If I am able, I’d like to do chats and other activities.

Updated Goals: I think I really want to try for 4 again. I have a lot of free time over the next few days!

Books to Read

The list isn’t in any order and please excuse my bare mattress (laundry day). I also have Jane Austen Goes to Hollywood by Abby McDonald and Manicpixiedreamgirl by Tom Leveen on deck in case I change my mind.

I’ve been wanting to read Scarlet for so long! I’ve also been curious about The Secret History of the Pink Carnation for a while. I kind of randomly picked the others because I’ve seen some good things about them.
