Bout of Books 10: Goals and Updates


Quick post with my hastily set goals for Bout of Books!

Goals - Try to read at least 6 MG books as I have a LOAD of MG to get through and they're quick reads generally, so I could finish them and clear some space.

Review at least 3 books for The Bookbag.

Participate in a challenge.

Get to one of the Twitter chats.

Post four blog posts (I have 2 guest posts lined up for this week and 1 nearly-written post so that SHOULD be doable...)

Comment on at least 15 blogs, including at least 5 new-to-me ones. (I'm TERRIBLE at commenting but want to get better.)

  2. Nice strategy with reading a bunch of MG. That's sure to get your book count up there! My current read is 450+ pages, but I was too excited to put it off until after Bout of Books, LOL. Oh well.

    Good luck and happy reading!
