Bout of Books (overview of goals and analysis)

 

 

BoB7.0-200x200-old

 

From May 13-19th was Bout of Books- a week of reading and completing other book-ish goals. Being my first Bout of Books, I was a bit ambitious in my goals- maybe too ambitious as I’d forgotten about some things going on last week that could be potential distractors from the goals.

My goals for the week were:

My goals for Bout of Books 7.0 are the following:

Books I Plan to Read/Finish:

1. Oscar Wilde and Murders at Reading Gaol by Gyles Brandreth

2. Looking for Me by Beth Hoffman

3. The Other Typist by Suzanne Rindell

4. The Guest Book by Erika Marks

5. 3rd Generation and Beyond by Danna Pycher

Other Book-ish things:

1. Post my review for The Glass Wives

2. Post reading schedule for Reconstructing Amelia for my 1st online book club beginning in June!

3. Post review for Oscar Wilde and Murders at Reading Gaol

4. Post interview with Danna Pycher

5. Update my Goodreads page

6. Tweet about Danna Pycher Twitter chat on May 22 #3gab ( thanks to Love at First Book)

7. Update my blog with reading challenge info, book blog tour info, and other things.

8. Attend The Cherry Cola Book Club by Ashton Lee book signing!

 

Last Wed I updated my goal process- here it is:

My goals for my first Bout of Books (still going on my friends!) were not super lofty. Read a bit more. Write a bit more. Do some things to my blog. Update my Goodreads page. You know just normal things.

So today’s Wednesday- let’s see how my Monday and Tuesday have shaped up goal-wise!

Monday:

Finished Oscar Wilde and the Murders at Reading Gaol by Gyles Brandreth- check!

Not too bad- 2 goals finished!

Wednesday (so far)
