Bout of Books 20

Bout of Books






I’m determined to make the most out of the Bout of Books reading challenge this week and knock out books that have been on my TBR for far too long!

I’m getting ahead of myself, let me have the organizers explain what’s about to go down:

The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda Shofner and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, August 21st and runs through Sunday, August 27th 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 20 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team

Now that we are on the same page, are you ready to sign-up? Follow these steps to join in on the fun!

  2. Add the direct link to your sign up post to the linky in the original post. You have until Tuesday, August 22nd at 11:59pm CST to sign up. (If the linky is closed, you’re too late.)

Here are the books I’m hoping to complete this week:

  • Bee Season by Myla Goldberg

  • The Nine Lives of Christmas by Sheila Roberts
  • The Merchant of Venic by William Shakespeare

Happy Reading!

Bookish Denver!

Finally, I was able to visit the place I hope to call home one day (oddly enough, I’d never been there before, yet still wanted to move there!). Additionally, it was also on my 30 Before 30 list! Fair warning, I walked EVERYWHERE and kept track of my step count. That is one of my goals wherever I end up, to be active and walking is the main commute.
