AmberBug has a Goal for Bout of Books 11.0

Bout of Books

I've decided to play along with a blogging "read-a-thon" happening Aug 18th thru Aug 24th, hosted by Bout of Books (another great book blog). 

So the plan is to read, lots. I'm hoping to read everyday (which I already do) but hopefully punch it up a bit on the weekend. During the week I think I've maxed out all my reading opportunities already, so this should be interesting. So, goal... I'm hoping to at least read 3 books in those two weeks. If I surpass that, I'll have to celebrate with cupcakes. I've been averaging a book a week, and the books that are on my "to-read" next aren't all that "small". So, one can only hope, right?

Below is a list of the books I'm planning on finishing and potentially reading for the read-a-thon. Come back during the week to see the progress I've made, and join up with us... this should be fun. :)

Goal #1: Finish this book: The Dialogue of Dogs (I've been working on this for quite some time now).

Goal #2: Devour this book of stories (re-told tales) - sent to me by the publisher. Can we just talk about how awesome that cover is?!

Goal #3: Last but not least... I'm hoping to at least start and ANOTHER short story collection (I feel swimming in these lately) but this one is super special, Margaret Atwood's "Stone Mattress", coming out this Fall. Who doesn't love a little Atwood?!


  1. Have fun! Look forward to reading your thoughts on the new Margaret Atwood collection.

  2. Thanks, I'm really looking forward to reading it myself. I've been reading WAY too many short story collections though. Maybe it's that kind of year?

  3. I've been reading a few short stories myself. As much as I enjoy reading them, I have a little bit of difficulty with how abstract some of the stories are or just end suddenly. I don't understand what happened or what the story was really about it.

  4. A great way of putting it, I have trouble with that too. I think I like novellas more because they tend to have a complete ending. :)
