Bout of Books 15 sign up
This is my sign up post for the Bout of Books 15 readthon. here's what it's all about...
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, January 4th and runs through Sunday, January 10th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 15 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog.
So, as you'll know, I've not been reading as much as I would like to recently and so this is just going to be a kick start to the year in terms of reading and therefore I'm not going to try and read any more than 2 books, that's my target and I'm sticking to it. My goal for the year is set at 100 books which I did manage to reach this year and so if i read 2 books a week, I know I'll be able to reach that goal.
"But Catriona, you're starting a new job this week and you have a 5000 word essay due in in less than 2 weeks, where will you find the time to read?" i hear you call, well...
Obviosuly I have to drive to and from work, this works out as anywhere between 1 and 3 hours each day so that means I should be able to finish an audiobook this week... Looking through my collection, the audiobook I have chosen is Reasons to Stay Alive by Matt Haig
This is a fairly short listen so if I manage to finish this one, I am going to select the last John Green novel that I haven't read, An Abundance of Katherines. I've been fancying reading some YA recently and this is also another short listen so it would seem perfect for the occasion!
Finally, the book I will be reading on my Kindle will be Match me if you Can by Michele Gorman. This is released on 14th January and so I want to get this read so that I can post my review!
After this I will just be please to actually manage to pick up another book, 2 is my aim and so I will be happy with this little crowd.
