Bout of Books 13 Goals & Progress

Less than 6 hours to go! I’m in Christchurch spending time with my husband’s family so I don’t have the luxury of plucking books off my shelves or visiting the public library. So, I’ve had to jump online and download a few ebooks. Of course books on my TBR aren’t available but they have a good selection of recent releases.

>>Time Devoted to Reading

I will be reading for at least half an hour every day of the week.

>>My Goals

To complete 1 book.
To read every day.
To visit & comment on a new blog everyday.
To spend time on Twitter cheering & catching up with everyone on #boutofbooks

>> Books to Read

I currently have 3 books downloaded from the library:-

  1. I requested A Darker Shade of Magic from my library AGES ago and still haven’t received it yet. I don’t think they purchased many copies, so you’re really lucky to be able to download it from your library.
    You’re doing really well so far – good luck for the final few days 🙂

  2. Thanks for visiting me! I love discovering new-to-me bloggers and new books too. I haven’t heard of any of those so I’m going to check them out 🙂

  3. Don’t worry, your comment came through just fine. It was only waiting to be moderated and you can see it now 😉 Thanks a lot for the comment 🙂 !
    Have fun reading and I hope you can reach all your goals. I’m already way behind with mine… 🙁

    1. Thanks! Hey, don’t worry about the goals too much. If you don’t reach them this time, then you’ve got a goal for Bout of Books 14! Good luck!

Go on! Share your secrets with me.
