Bout of Books Goals

Bout of BooksNext week is Bout of Books--where you try to read more than you usually would in a week.  Last time I participated, my goals struggled--I read but not as much as I had hoped.  My goal was to finish a book...and I still haven't finished the book that I started that week :(.  This time around I want to make it realistic, and that week is vacation.  So I would hope I can finish a book in a week when I am on vacation-especially when I am going to be on a plane for part of it.  I even hope to finish more than one--but that is setting my sights pretty high.  In terms of my book of choice, I would like to finish Mansfield Park that week as apart of Austen in August.  I am also hoping to start my new J.K. Rowling too...but I want to focus on finishing Mansfield Park.  But hey maybe I should finish DaVinci Code and Guernsey Literary and To Kill a Mockingbird too :)  I have a lot to accomplish and I am hoping that I can.  As I often do with my vacations I give myself way too much to do!

At least you're reading. I am holding my breath until my kids start school next week to have time to start reading the books I've collected over the summer (Yay for library sales!)

Sweet list!
