Bout of Books

 

Goals:

1. To Have Fun

2. To Read More Books

3. To Experience a low-key read-a-thon (24 hour marathons are really intense)

 

Books Picked:

1. My Fair Concubine (Tang Dynasty #3) by Jeannie Lin - buddy read with Obsidian Blue

2. Mission to Murder (Tourist Trap #2) by Lynn Cahoon

3. A Dream Defiant by Susanna Fraser

4. High Stakes: The Rising Cost of America's Gambling Addiction by Sam Skolnik

5. Magic in His Kiss by Shari Anton

 

In order to complete my goals, I am curbing my habits of being on FB and Twitter so much and not going to watch any movies/tv shows until next week.

Friday's Progress

1. Finished and reviewed Mission to Murder

3. Chose to swap out the other non-fiction book I had planned on reading during the read-a-thon. I picked another romance book (medieval era!) that was a freebie in the NOOK store and that I downloaded a long time ago. I really need to stop reading non-fiction during read-a-thons, they are time suckers that are slowing me down.
