Yes, people, I am going to take part in a read-a-thon next week. I'm feeling a need to mix with others a bit, and the Bout of Books people sound very reassuring about low-pressure. See? They said "low-pressure" in the above blurb. No, I won't be challenging myself or going after any grand prizes. I'm not even competing with myself relating to my usual number of books read in a week, because I've been jumping around among books recently, so there hasn't been any "books read in a week."
My goals are somewhat murky. I want to finish up a couple of eBooks I've started, and see what I can do with the library pile. And maybe read a few essays from the book I've left in the car for emergency travel reading. Since I've just joined Twitter, figuring out how to follow the #boutof books Twitter account would be a good idea. And I'm behind with some Goodreads updates. It would be good if I could get to those next week, too.
I expect to be doing a two-hour car trip on Sunday, and I should only have to drive one way. Some reading time there. Then next week will definitely be stationary bike week during exercise sessions because I can read there, too.
Go over to the Bout of Books site and take a look at the sign up post. There are over 300 bloggers planning to do this. I will keep you posted on how this one is doing.
