Bout of Books 13 TBR

Hello, and happy Monday!  Today I'm talking about the Bout of Books 13.0 Readathon that is taking place this week from the 11th to the 17th.  This is a very low-pressure readathon; the goal is simply to read more than you normally would during the week.  I've never participated in a readathon before, but since I need to get my "books read" number up on Goodreads, and because I felt like it, I decided it'd be fun.  My TBR is fairly modest, but realistic, some shorter (easier) books and one big one, and I'm hopeful that I'll at least make a big dent in it.  Only one of these books was a part of my May TBR, and I'm excited to read these ones.  First, though, let me link to the readathon.

Bout of Books

The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, May 11th and runs through Sunday, May 17th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 13 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team

To sign up for the readathon and keep up with the updates, challenges, and all that, head over to their website: here's the link to sign up and here's the website.  Sign up is open through tomorrow.  

Now, let's get to the books I hope to read this week.  

A couple of these books were shown in my book haul last month and they are A Room With a View and Bringing Narnia Home.  Both of those are pretty short and I've already started A Room With a View.  The Nero Wolfe mysteries are totally new to me – I've had this book sitting in my room for a long time now, and as the font is large and the page number few, this should be a quick read.  And finally, I really really want to try my hardest to finish The Bully Pulpit this week.  I have about 400 pages to go, and I'm just gonna power through it.  

And those are the books I hope to read this week!  I feel pretty good about this, but we shall see!  I'll be tweeting and updating my Goodreads status throughout the week, if you want to follow my progress.  Thanks for reading, and I'll be back later this week to talk about my favorite literary friendships.  xo, Ella
