bout of books 15


Glad to be back for Bout of Books, as I was not able to join #14!

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, January 4th
and runs through Sunday, January 10th 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 15 information and updates,
be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog.

Now, what will I be reading from?

  • Couple Mechanics, by Nelly Allard
  • Albertine Disparue, by Marcel Proust
  • Toward the Endless Day, by Olga Lossky
  • Gaspar, Melchior & Balthazar, by Michel Tournier
  • Audio: The Secret of the Old Clock, by Carolyn Keene (Nancy Drew #1)
  • Maybe: La cache, by Christophe Boltanski

My daily reading average for 2015 was 63 pages a day.
So my challenge this week will be to read 455 pages (average of 65 pages/day).
Not counting some time for audiobooks as well.

And I will organize a giveaway!
