Bout of Books 4.0 Readathon

Bout of Books Read-a-Thon

Time for another Bout of Books readathon! Running from Monday May 14, 2012 until Sunday May 20, 2012, the aim is to read as much as possible in the allotted time frame. While I work a 12 hour shift on Monday and graduate on Friday, I feel I’ll still be able to get a fair amount of reading done. Click the above banner for more information 🙂

As before, this post will be my update post during the readathon and I’ll have it stickied.

    • Thanks! I had mixed thoughts on Matched so I’m curious to see what I’ll think of Crossed. I’m going into it with an open mind!

    • Thanks! I usually expect second books to be a lot of filler, especially in a trilogy. We’ll see how I get through it, I may switch it out for a different book if it’s taking me too long.
