2nd Annual Beat The Heat Readathon ~ Goals & Progress

3

August 10, 2014 by Bernadette ~ The Bumbling Bookworm

Some of you might remember that I’ve signed up for the 2nd Annual Beat the Heat Readathon – it starts tomorrow and runs for three weeks, and I’m pretty pumped!  I have to set my goal for what I hope to achieve, and also have a post tracking my progress, and this is that post.  So, here we go!

Reading Goals

Read a minimum of 8 books
Read a minimum of 2400 pages
Read everyday

I’ve chosen to track both my books and pages read because I think it would be very easy for me to just go and find 8 of the skinniest books out there to read!  Of course there’s nothing wrong with that but I’d rather read the books I’ve already got, so this should hold me to account.  I’ve kept it at approximately 300 pages per book, and I have books to read with more than that and also books with less so it should even itself out.

I also plan to read everyday, even on the days where I just can’t be bothered.  I’m hoping that this will get me back into a rhythm with reading, even if I’m only reading a short amount on the days when I can’t be stuffed or don’t have time.

Reading Progress

I’ll keep updating you guys of my progress as I go along… Feel free to keep checking back in to see how I’ve gone!

Hi! I'm Bernadette, a 27 year old lawyer who loves to read (duh!), especially to escape my day job. I love to talk about books but I don't always get the opportunity to do so, hence my blog! I adore YA literature, most genres of Adult Fiction, and I've also been known to pick up a non-fiction book from time to time. I hope you enjoy your visit!
