I normally wouldn’t make two posts in a day, let alone within a few hours of each other, but I just noticed that here is a Bout of Books reading challenge starting TOMORROW! I thought about just posting this tomorrow, but I am back at work (after twelve glorious days off) and so I wouldn’t get around to it until the evening and then day one is almost over!
For those who have absolutely no clue what I am talking about here’s the official Bout of Books Website.
I always mean to do these reading challenges, but they always tend to fall to the wayside (Bout of Books, Read Your Bookshelf-a-Thon, Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-a-Thon), but because I am trying to read a bit differently this year (if that makes any sort of sense) I want to try some of these just to keep a momentum going.
Because it is my first week back at work and I know I will have TONS to do because my classroom just got repainted and I have to get ready for new students, etc… I am not going to go too crazy. These are the reading goals I would like to reach this week, if possible:
I would like to finish the two books I am currently reading:
The Interestings by Meg Wolitzer
I am currently on page 236 of 538 and would like to finish the book this week.
Bad Feminist: Essays by Roxane Gay
I am currently on page 71 of 318 and would like to finish this book this week.
The next two are both graphic novels that I have out from the library that I would like to read this week:
Anya’s Ghost by Vera Brosgol
The Gigantic Beard that was Evil by Stephen Collins
This may be a bit ambitious of a TBR for the week, but I am more than willing to try and see how far I get!
