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

It can be any genre as long as the author is from the United States. You choose the book (up to $15), and I'll order it and have it mailed to you from Book Depository . The contest ends on Thursday, July 5th at midnight Eastern Time. The winner will be notified by e-mail. If they do not respond within 48 hours, a new winner will be drawn. Happy 4th of July!
