It’s Almost Time!! Bout of Books 10.0 #boutofbooks

Bout of Books
Do you know what time it is?  That’s right.  Less than 12 days until Bout of Books starts!  Bout of Books is one of my favorite events because it lets me get to know other bloggers and others who are as obsessed with reading as I am.  Oh, and there are fun challenges and stuff.  And, tons and tons of READING!
In case you don’t know what it is all about, Bout of Books says on their site:
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, May 12th and runs through Sunday, May 18th 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 10 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team
Sounds like awesomeness, right?  That’s what I said too!  As the event gets closer, I will put up a goals post and all that fun stuff, but this is me officially signing up and committing to participate.  Are you participating too?  Let me know so I can check out your blog as well!

Clean Sweep ARC Challenge!!!!! Startup and Goals Post #CleansweepARC

Clean Sweep ARC Challenge May 2014

Okay, so I know I have been fairly quiet lately and my posting quantity has not been where it ought to be.  But now, I am diving into this challenge in the hopes that I can get myself back on track and get a dent made in this massive pile of reading that is awaiting me.  I have quite (read, I have an addiction) books hanging in my Netgalley queue waiting to be read, in addition to a large number of books from publishers that I have allowed myself to get behind on.  I plan to get that under control this month and get a fair number of these read and reviews at least drafted up to be able to just schedule the posts.
