Bout of Books Readathon 2.0 Starting Line & Updates



Amanda of On a Book Bender hosts the second Bout of Books readathon from October 24 to October 30.

My Goals:

I will try to do my average amount of reading and read at least an a hour day or 50-100 pages a day. Although, I hope I'll manage to read more than that. Nevertheless, 500 pages is my minimum goal for the week.

I have a pile of books ready at hand, so I have plenty of choice for different moods, but I am mainly planning to finish Forbidden, which I started yesterday and read 30 pages, read The Pillars of Society, which is really short, and read around 100 pages of The Silmarillion. But basically it all depends on how I feel and how much time I have to read.

The books to choose from:

Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma
The Pillars of Society by Henrik Ibsen (my review)
The Silmarillion by J. R. R. Tolkien
Dark Need's at Night's Edge (IAD #5) by Kresley Cole
How Huge the Night by Heather and Lydia Munn
The Queen of the Damned (The Vampire Chronicles #3) by Anne Rice
Surviving with Wolves by Misha Defonseca
The Expected One (The Magdalene Line #1) by Katheleen McGowan

  1. Good luck, I think that's a sensible goal considering the books you've got lined up. I'd probably need all week just to get through the Tolkien.
