Bout of Books 13 Goals

Bout of Books
Goals are always an important part of my readathon experience. I feel I don't get as much reading done without goals and setting them is always so much fun! In fact setting goals is one of the things I'm actually really looking forward to when I hear there is going to be a readathon. Even though I have goals it doesn't mean that I will be 100% going to go by them or that I will actually manage to complete them all. It's just fun to kinda have the guidelines but it's also fun to break them. I tend to set myself too many goals and can't actually complete them all most of the time but it really doesn't bother me at all. It's always nice to see if you can outdo yourself :)

Basic Goals

- Read at least 100 pages/ day
- Read at least 2 chapters of A Clash of Kings/ day
- Participate...
