End Post:

I finished 3/4 books from my list and listened to 2 audiobooks, but did not finish either one.  I read 1,093 pages.

This is my second time that I have participated in the Bout of Books Read-A-Thon and I did fairly well last time so maybe I can get some reading done this time.  I set my goal last time at 9 but I have a few longer books this time around so I’m setting my goal at 4 books.
Here’s my tentative list:
  1. The Raven Boys (Raven Cycle #1) by Maggie Stiefvater
  2. Dead Is A Killer Tune (Dead Is #7) by Marlene Perez
  3. Dead Is Just A Dream (Dead Is #8) by Marlene Perez
  4. A Walk To Remember by Nicholas Sparks

I usually read 4-5 books a week so I’m setting my goal at 9 books, although some of them are between 200 and 300 pages.  It’s also the kids’ first full week of school next week so we’ll see how it goes.
Here’s my tentative list:
