Bout of Books 22: Goals and Updates

Bout of Books 22 starts today! It's my favorite readathon because it gives me the opportunity to connect with other readers and bloggers, as well as an extra excuse to devote more time to reading :) As in the past few Bout of Books rounds, I'm not stressing out about pages read. My goals this time are the exact same as Bout of Books 21. Want more details about Bout of Books? Check out my sign up post.


1. Spend time reading. Duh. I will be tracking TIME reading, not pages. Pages are hard to compare--a YA book vs. a women's fiction book vs. a graphic novel. I don't care how many pages, or compare this readathon's page total to another, I just want to spend time reading because I love reading! My goal is to spend more time reading than usual but not stress out about it. I have enough in my life to stress over and reading is supposed to be FUN!
2. Connect with other readers and bloggers via Twitter, Instagram, etc. Bout of Books is such a great way to connect with others! Please tweet or DM me on instagram to connect!

3. Have fun! Always the main goal of Bout of Books!!

I started Little Fires Everywhere late last week and am 100 pages in. Loving it so far and finishing it is also a goal this week.  You Think It, I'll Say It is the May Reese Witherspoon Book Club pick, so that one is next on my list! Also just got Food: What the Heck Should I Eat? from the library and going to read it this week too.
