Bout of books 12.0

The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, January 5th and runs through Sunday, January 11th 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 12 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team

The first bout of books read-a-thon is here. Yeah. It starts on January 5th and ends on the 11th and I thought, yeah, sure. I’ll do that. Because so far I’ve been very very lazy. So I thought this might make me get all fired up. Not that I get fired up for anything, I’m a snarky sarcasm gnome, we don’t get fired up. I’m putting “snarky sarcasm gnome” on my resume. Anyway. I feel like I’m going off topic.

I will hopefully have read more than I’ve read at this point before the thing starts, but at this point the read-a-thon TBR is very ambitious. I thought I’d be as ambitious as possible so I have a lot of choice. I chose books that feel like quick reads, like The Hero’s Guide to being an Outlaw and Legend, and also put in a graphic novel/comic book to mix it up to make it easier on myself.

So this is my TBR:

Yeah, it’s a tad ambitious. I don’t imagine I’ll read all that, but I like to have a lot to choose from so I don’t feel boxed in. And they are different genres and different plots and stuff, which I think helps.

I’ll try to do updates as the week goes along, I guess, and on the 12th I’ll try to do a wrap-up thing. So that’ll be fun for me, and hopefully you, dear reader. What am I doing? It might be interesting to know, or not, that the way I write is also how I speak. I actually speak this way, I don’t know why anyone actually ever talks to me. On the other hand, I talk to myself a lot so I don't need others, do I? Yeah, there's the key to happiness.

So read-a-thon engage, I guess.
