Bout of Books 9.0 - The Goals

Bout of Books 9.0 starts tomorrow, January 6th and as much as I tried to be sensible and not join in this time (so much stuff on, guys), I can't resist a week of bookish delights. In fact, I'd like to see a bookish person who could resist. This time, instead of going a bit crazy daisy with the goals, I'm going to keep it relaxed and carefree. As reading should be.

The Goals

  • Read for 2-3 hours a day (commute to and from work, lunch break, evening)
  • Discover new to me blogs and have some enthusiastic chats with you lovely folk
  • Finish at least 2 of the 3 books I currently have on the go
The Books
  • Z by Therese Anne Fowler - I'm reading this for Leah's Jazz Age in January and loving it so far
  • The Lie by Helen Dunmore - WW1 fiction? Absolute winner. I'm reading this for the sheer joy of it but I will always be reviewing it over on Centenary News when the books page I'm editing launches (which is soon and I am SO EXCITED)
  • The Assassin's Mark by David Ebsworth - this is for a blog tour. It's a historical novel set in the Spanish Civil War (something I'd love to know more about)
Kindle case is shamefully dirty...well used, even.
So there we have it, a relaxed Bout of Books which will hopefully encourage me to finish at least one book (whoever thought it was a good idea to read multiple books simultaneously was wrong. Wait, that was me...).

Are you joining in? What are your main goals?



  1. I'M SO EXCITED WHEE!! Going to keep this bout of books as relaxed as possible too because school and all, but it's always nice to get some reading done =) Have fun!

  2. So glad you are joining in! I'm reading a lot today, indeed I am... A few days away from home always ends in a small sized chaos in my reader so I've been reading mainly blog posts. And a bit of my book. (I shall also reply your e-mail once I've managed to create some kind of order in my mailbox!)

    Let's have a nice Bout of Books! :)
