I'm a bookworm of the highest caliber! If you see me, I'll probably be reading. There's nothing I love more than finding a good book, and then sharing it with the world!

Bout of Books 13 - Update Post

 Bout of Books

Oh, so good. I hate being in a reading slump, but the benefit is that when I bounce back I do it in a BIG way. I'm devouring books like they were tasty donuts.

Nothing today! I lost myself in the Oh, Comics! podcast, and I'm not even sad about it.

 

How I'm feeling:

Great! I'm on a graphic novel binge, and it feels good. It's a nice way to break up longer reads, especially since a lot of the ones I've had to read for tours have only been "just okay".

GOALS!

 

TIME DEVOTED TO READING

 

As always, I have to work during Bout of Books. However I'll try to devote as much non-work time as I can to reading. Train rides are fair game, as well as quiet time in the evenings. Also I'll be listening to audio books at work!

 

MY GOALS

 

* Read a few graphic novels that I've been waiting to get to.
* Complete at least 3 of my pending NetGalley/Edelweiss titles.

* Finish at least 1 audio book title.

* Finish at least 1 book off my "out of the box" list.

* Participate/Comment as much as possible!

 

BOOKS TO READ

 

This is a list of hopeful reads. It may change, but I'm going to try to stick to it as much as possible.
