Bout of Books 19: Midweek Update

Bout of Books
The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda Shofner and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, May 8th and runs through Sunday, May 14th 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 19 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog.  - From the Bout of Books team

So there was some slacking off going on these past three days for Bout of Books.  Of course, since my goal was to read at least 4 books for this read-a-thon week, I'm well on my way to reaching that goal.  Finishing up two books and beginning a third, I'm hoping to have a fourth finished before the end of the thon.  However, being that I will be out of town with family for the weekend, reading opportunities might be scarce.

Just crossing my fingers and hoping that I'll at least be able to finish my third book and get started on the fourth, even if I can't reach my ultimate goal.  Obviously, I'm not going to get around to my Read-a-thon Hopefuls...
