Bout Of Books Read-A-Thon – 7.0

Bout Of Books

Bout Of Books – Overview

This week I’m participating in my first Bout of Books Read-A-Thon – a bi-annual event organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal.

This week-long Read-A-Thon begins 12:01 am Monday, May 13th and runs through Sunday, May 19th in whatever time zone you are in.

Bout of Books is low-pressure; 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 complete details about the Bout of Books 7.0 Read-A-Thon and future events, visit the Bout Of Books blog!

Bout Of Books – Goals

Bout Of Books - 5-13 thru 19

Following are the list of books I plan on reading for this week. Check this post for ongoing progress reports! I will be reviewing each of these books shortly after completion (links will appear once the reviews are completed).

  • Ancient Elk Hunt – G. M. Moore
  • Snake Head Invasion – G. M. Moore
  • The Cat That God Sent – Jim Krause
  • The Dog That Talked To God – Jim Krause
  • Life’s A Pain – Todd Rettberg
  • Pastors’ Wives – Lisa Takeuchi Cullen

I also hope to participate in Challenges and Twitter Chats as time permits! However, my schedule is tight this week as my Internet connection was down and/or intermittent for a few days – so I’ll be playing that by ear!

The Cat That God Sent – A Novel by Jim Krause (329 pages)

As of this writing, I am on page 259 out of 329; I will complete this book today!

As a side note, I’ve been sharing tidbits about this book with my husband and I’ve piqued his interest enough that he is planning on reading this as soon as he finishes Pukka’s Promise!

    looks like you are having a great week! Keep it up! Will you be doing the Twitter chat on Saturday? Looks like that and the Bloggiesta chat are at the same time? Figured I’d let you know too that Blogathon signups are open! I didn’t see you signed up yet, hope you can join in!
