Bout Of Books 11 - Introduction and TBR!

Bout of BooksSo, there's this thing called Bout Of Books, maybe you've heard of it? Well I've decided to do it this month!
What is 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, August 18th and runs through Sunday, August 24th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure, and the only reading competition is between you and your usual number of books read in a week. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 11 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team
So, sounds fun right? After all the writing I've been doing recently I am desperate for just a week of nothing but reading and this sound perfect.

My Goals: To read...a lot. I would like to finish 5 books over the week. My average per week fluctuates but 5 sounds good, right?
So let's say 1,500 pages? I don't actually have all the books I'm reading at the moment so I'm not positive of their page counts but this sounds..reasonable?

My Daily Reading Goals: Umm. A book a day!(then I can read 7!)

My Posts: I'll probably do small daily updates!

Books To Read:
The Eragon...series? quartet? wait I got it: The Inheritance Cycle! I'm planning on reading all four books which I just bought because I saw a review or something for them and it got me thinking...why haven't I read this yet? I mean it's fantasy, about dragons and that's all I want in my life! I haven't even seen the movie! All  know about this series in there are dragons, there was a movie that failed and in the movie their was an Avril Lavigne song.

  1. Yey Bout of Books! I like the goal of a book a day, though I tend to be too slow a reader for that normally ;-). I will say that I struggled a bit with the Inheritance Cycle after Eragon since it gets slower, so maybe have shorter books to mix things up in case you get bogged down?

  2. OH MUH GAWD! I can't even tell you how much I love "Howl's Moving Castle". Diana Wynne Jones is my favorite author of all time and this was the first book of hers that I read. It is truly incredible. If you've ever seen the animated version of the book I have to let you know that even though the movie was wonderful the book is (of course) SO much more fantastic.

    I am SO happy that you're reading this book!

    Best of luck on this BoB! Good luck and enjoy!

    1. Thank you! I actually haven't seen the movie yet I'm planning on watching it after I read the book! Howl's Moving Castle is pretty much the only book I listed here that I am still planning on reading! =)
