I want to schedule a reading day. I think I want to do teach month. Maybe on the 1st. Get a stack of books together and just read. What do y’all think?
Anyone want to join me?
I know there are read-a-thons with blogs and sites and it’s been a while since I’ve done one of those… I should look them up to see when their next organized read-a-thons are, but… I need to catch up on my Goodreads Reading Challenge and I just feel like I need a day to read.
Of course, full confession… I was watching a YouTube video of a girl reading for 24 hours (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ryCFZI7s8I4&t=347s) and it got me thinking about doing something like it. Maybe not 24 hours, but then again, maybe…
I have a lot of books on my Kindle to read, a lot of books on my physical bookshelf to read, and I know I’ll be purchasing more books or borrowing more books from KU before the end of the year so I need to get cracking on some of the ones I already have.
Anyway… If you’d like to join in and read with me starting on August 1st, let me know. If not, I’ll still let y’all know how it goes and if I actually would want to do it again in September.
Before I sign-off, what are you currently reading?

It’s time to GET YOUR READ ON!
Bout of Books is a read-a-thon hosted by author/blogger/reader Amanda Shofner and blogger/reviewer/reader Kelly from Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, January 8th and runs through Sunday, January 14th 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 21 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog.
I will be posting updates about my reading on Twitter, Facebook, and hopefully Instagram.
I’m still gathering the books that I will be reading or attempting to read. At least one will be a paperback or hardback and at least one will be on Kindle. I have a ton of books to choose from and I’m totally excited to be participating again.
I don’t have any goals really beyond reading. I started 2017 with the intention of reading more and reading at least one chapter of a book at night. I will be employing that same intention for 2018, only I want to read more than one chapter per day/night. I have found a love of reading again by branching out and forcing myself to get out of the reading rut I was in prior to 2017. And read-a-thons like Bout of Books has helped tremendously.
If you’d like to join up as well, and I think you should, the sign-up is HERE.
Some participants are listing goals for the read-a-thon and I think, for me, given the writing schedule I have, my goal for this round of Bout of Books will be to read 2 books. If I can read 3 books, that would be awesome. But my stated goal will be to read 2 books. On January 8th, I’ll let y’all know what book I’m going to start with.
I really do hope you’ll consider signing up to read with me and whole big community of readers.
