Bout of Books Read-A-Thon, May 2016

Bout of Books

It's time for another Bout of Books!

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 9th and runs through Sunday, May 15th 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 16 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team
During January's read-a-thon, I managed to read 30 digital ARCs in a week. I read so much that I have only just finished scheduling reviews of some of those titles! During this bout, which runs the week of May 9th, I'm hoping to have similar success. Here are my tentative goals:

  • Read three titles for Fumbling Through Fantasy (which takes me through the end of June)
  • Read one Old School Sunday title (to fill the next available date, June 12th)
  • Read my 1960s and 1970s titles for Newbery Through the Decades. (Total of 2 books)
  • Read ARCs for middle grade books coming out in June and July. (Total of 7 books)
  • Read ARCs of chapter books coming out in June and July. (Total of 7 books)
  • Read all the YA ARCs I currently have. (Total of 4 books)
This is only 24 books, so hopefully I'll get these done and with the time leftover, get started on the rest of the titles I want to blog about this summer. Check back here, and on my Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts the week of May 9th to follow my progress.
