Bout of Books Read-a-thon

Bout of Books Soooo I decided to participate in the Bout of Books Read-a-thon! If you don’t know what it is:

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, May 12th and runs through Sunday, May 18th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure, and the only reading competition is between you and your usual number of books read in a week. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 10 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team

I had to think hard about joining because I’m just so busy (and preparing for another holiday in a little over a week). At the same time, the book I’m currently reading (Forbidden Colours) is just begging me to finish it before my holiday and at this rate I’m not sure if I’ll make it… Seems like a good reason to participate, so yes, I’m participating!

My goals:

  • Finish Forbidden Colours by Yukio Mishima
  • Get to page 123 in Krabat by Otfried Preußler, because that means I’ll have finished the ‘first year’, in other words part one of the book.

After that I’ll read anything I can get my hands on 😉

I’ll be updating on Twitter @brilliantreads.
