My first bout of books is around the corner and while I read all the time, I’m hoping I can be a bit more focused next week. Even an extra few books will help make a dent in the paper and electronic books piles that seem to keep expanding rather than shrinking.
Thus far in 2014 I’m averaging just under three books a week, which sounds pretty good until you realize I buy more than that each week! For Bout of Books I’m hoping to spend more time reading and less time checking Twitter and Facebook, as fascinating and educational the links I find in both places end up being.
My goal is to read ten books from May 12 – May 18.
It’s not as much of a stretch as it might seem since I plan on including several middle grade books in the mix. I’m also planning on using this concerted push to be a better NetGalley user by finishing and providing feedback to five titles publishers have granted me access to — I want to build my credibility.
