Bout of Books 11 Read-a-thon

Bout of Books
The Bout of Books read-a-thon starts today and I've decided to sign up. I don't think I've actually done this one before, but it sounds pretty easy. Here's an explanation of what it's all about:
The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, August 18th and runs through Sunday, August 24th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure, and the only reading competition is between you and your usual number of books read in a week. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 11 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team
My goals:
  1. Read every evening for at least an hour Mon-Fri. (I work full time and the kids start all their fall activities this week, so getting an hour of reading in each night is actually a tough goal!)
  2. Read for at least 4-5 hours on the weekend.
  3. Finish The Bone Seeker by M.J. McGrath
  4. Finish The Beach House by Mary Alice Monroe
