Bout of Books 10.0 Goals & "To Be Read" List

As I mentioned a couple of days ago, I'm doing Bout of Books 10.0! As there are only a few days left before the awesomeness begins, I decided it'd be a good idea to post my goals for the read-a-thon, as well as my "To-Be-Read" list.

I'm doing Bout of Books with two of my best friends, so I know I'll have plenty of support and encouragement; not to mention the fellow participants I'm sure I'll be meeting!

  • Read two novels, two graphic novels, one play and listen to one audiobook
  • Participate in (at least) one Twitter chat (I've never done Bout of Books before, so I'm not really sure what to expect for these)
  • Participate in two challenges (again, I've never done this before so I'd like to try different things)
  • Make daily progress posts
  • Read at least one hour per day (although I'm hoping to do more than that)

To-Be-Read for Bout of Books
  • John Green's "The Fault in Our Stars" (I'm also participating in the Chapters/Indigo book club, and TFIOS is this month's book)
  • Moira Young's "Blood Red Road: Dustlands 1" (I'm going to a signing for Moira on Monday, so I might start a bit early on this one)
  • Frank Miller, Klaus Janson and Lynn Varley's "Batman: The Dark Knight Returns"
  • Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster's "The Superman Chronicles: Volume 2"
  • Samuel Beckett's "Waiting for Godot"
  • Mindy Kaling's audiobook "Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns)"

And of course, this list is tentative; if I feel more inclined to read a different story or (*GASP*) I finish my list with time to spare, I'll choose something else to read.

Are you participating in Bout of Books? What are you reading?

I'd like to give a big thanks to Christine, who introduced me to and has been showing me the ropes of this read-a-thon!


  1. Great to-read list! I've been debating picking up The Fault in Our Stars before it's turned into a movie, but so far have decided that it just sounds too sad. I hope you have a wonderful Bout of Books :)

    1. It is SO sad. It'll tug at your heart strings and never let go - I highly recommend it! ;) Thank you very much, I hope you have a great Bout of Books too!
