Goals Smoals

I really didn't think long and hard today about what I'd like to accomplish this week during the Bout of Books Read-a-thon. Let's be honest.....if I over think things, it isn't going to end well.

Sadly, at 9pm on day one I still haven't committed to what I'm going to read. And I barely know what my goals are going to be. BUT I have a couple so we will go with that and see where it takes us!
Daily Goals: Read for at least an hour a day. That may not seem like much but things have been ridiculously busy around here lately and finding an hour to carve out of my day has been a bit difficult. But this week I'm going to make time to get lost in my book, even if I need to give up some quality time with my Detroit Tigers.

Weekly Goals: Read two books, one from my Netgalley library. My Netgalley sellections are a little out of control. That is what happens when you think your going to be declined but are approved instead. NOT that I am complaining. I have a lot of good selections to choose from. It's just the choosing know that is the problem. Although the choosing part isn't strictly related to those books. I have stacks of them around the house begging to be read. I just need to settle in with one.

Books: The current plan is to read Waiting for Dead Men's Shoes: A Mini Monroe Comic Mystery by Lauren Baratz-Logsted and Riveted by Meljean Brook.

Updates: I'm going to try and do a couple of updates here on the blog during the week, but most of them will be via Goodreads and Twitter.


  1. I've had the same experience with some if the books from Netgalley. I have read a couple though that weren't too bad.

  2. I hear you on Netgalley. I'm so bad about getting approved... and then not reading the book. That said, a few of the books I WAS approved for, the writing was just.. yeah. Not worth reading. Good luck with your reading btw!


Thanks for reading!
