Bout of Books 2.0 Starting Line Up and Updates




Bout of Books 2.0 nearly here and I'm so excited that I'm going to tell you all about what I'm planning on accomplishing this time around!  But first... Go check out Amanda @ On a Book Bender, our outstanding host for this read-a-thon...

Quick Reminders from Amanda:
  • Sign up! I will leave sign-up open through Friday 10/28.
  • You must be signed up and on the Master List to qualify for challenge prizes.  Co-hosts will check the list to verify.
  • Check out the Bout of Books schedule
  • Say hi to other Bout of Books readers.
  • Find Bout of Books participants on Twitter.
  • See what everyone is tweeting.  Use #boutofbooks in your tweets.
  • Look for a wrap up post (and survey; we want to know what worked or didn’t) at On a Book Bender on Monday, 10/31
  • If you choose to have a starting line post with goals, please PLEASE include how much you intend to read.  Not everyone can read the entire week, so it is helpful to know when (or how much) you can read.
  • Submit a link to your starting line post at the end of this post.
  • And most importantly: HAVE  FUN.
As for me:



Time Devoted to Reading:

I plan on devoting at least a few hours every day to reading.  That is in between all the studying I will be doing for school.



My goals: 


I want to read atleast 3 books...but I'm shooting for 5 to 6.




My Books:

Convergence
Geek Girl    (I loved this book so much)

Farsighted
Beckoning Light
The Only Way to Paradise  (Great book)

Two Moons of Sear
