Bout of Books Read-a-thon

Oh my gosh! I can’t believe it’s time for Bout of Books 20. I participated for the first time in May and wasn’t as successful as I wanted to be, but that’s behind me now.

Bout of Books is a one-week read-a-thon beginning Monday, August 21st at 12:01 am (your time zone) and ending Sunday, August 27th. And the best part is it’s low-pressure. There are challenges (optional), giveaways, and a grand prize.

The Triple Dog Dare Pseudo- Reading Plan

I’m one of those people who have to have a plan. I have fun making plans. However, I am also one of those people who make plans and somehow quickly deviate from them.

Why? Who knows.

So, I’ve come up with another plan. Well, kind of.

tbr-final-dareAs you know or even if you don’t know, I’m participating in the last TBR Triple Dog Dare dare. It’s a fairly simple reading dare. All you have to do from January 1, 2016 to April 1, 2016 is read what’s in your TBR pile as of midnight December 31st. Continue reading

I Read Banned Books Meetup Group

ETtnE9[1] I’m so excited my Meetup went live today, just in time to kick off Banned Books Week. It’s called the I Read Banned & Challenged Books Club. So, obviously if you live in the Washington, DC metro area, please join us or if know someone who lives in the area that loves to read and is so inclined to make a few new friends than by all means them our way. If you don’t live in the area you can still be a part of the group. I will post the upcoming month’s book under the I Read Banned Books Club tab and you can read right along with us. After we meet I will upload a post that will contain my critique, a group discussion summary, and a few group comments. Feel free to share your thoughts on the banned book of the month. I would definitely love to continue discussing the book. Our first meet up is October 18th and we’re reading Flowers for Algernon by Daniel Keyes. Enjoy! I hope you’ll stop by I Read Banned Books Club and give us your thoughts.
