Bout of Books Read-a-Thon

It's time for Bout of Books again! I usually try to take part, even if I don't get all that much accomplished. It's a fun way to read a bit more than usual and meet new bloggers! 

Bout of Books Read-a-Thon

If you'd like to know more about this read-a-thon, here is a description from the Bout of Books blog:
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 7th and runs through Sunday, January 13th 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 6.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. -From the Bout of Books 6.0 team

Not bad! I really tried to read a bit more than usual, and it helped to have the read-a-thon to push me. It's been hard to read as much since having baby #2. I'm determined to reach my goal of 75 books this year though! I didn't have that much time to go on twitter or meet other bloggers this time. I'm a bit disappointed, but I knew that would be hard.

Til next time!
