Bout of books 8.0 - The goals

Bout of BooksThe 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, August 19th and runs through Sunday, August 25th 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 8.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team







Only actually just heard about this from a fellow book blogger Lauren, (check out her goals here.) and I can say I'm really excited about this AS it i'll also be my first ever read-a-thon! 

Have I been living under a rock? Yes.. apparently so. 

As it all kicks of tomorrow, I thought it would be wise to quickly share some of my goal! 
Now I can't exactly say, I haven't been reading a lot lately.. because  that would be a flat out lie. I never go anywhere without my Kindle, however it'll finally give me a reason to finish all the books that I've still got lying around, unfinished for one reason or another.  (I get into the habit of putting down a book when things get too tough.. 

EXHIBIT A.. 
The Evolution of Mara Dryer... now I've only got about two chapters left.. but I just can't bring myself to finish, too afraid what the cliffhanger everyones been raving on about will do to me.

& Then theres also Charade by Nyrae Dawn, I'm around two quarters into the book, GREAT story, but here we are again.. I just can't bring myself to deal with what's about to happen in the next chapter.. 

Additionally there's Opal, Shatter Me and numerous others..

I'm such a wimp! 

But no more, this Week, I WILL finish these off once and for all! 


GOALS
