Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-a-Thon April 2015 Sign Up!

Dewey

So it is here again – The Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon!! 25th of April is the day. I'm so excited and of course I'm participating. I mean who wouldn't! I will be posting my goal list later on. Also I think I will do hourly updates on the day because last time it was really fun and provided a nice break every hour which I think helped me to read the whole 24 hours.

I hope to see you in the 25th!

Bout of Books 12 Goals

Bout of Books
I know that there is no goal linky in the bout of books blog but no matter! I am still going to set myself some goals because I love it. It's the part I wait the most, it's just so fun. Besides if I don't set myself some goals I feel I would read much less. Not that I stress about the goals but they just motivate me to read more. It's fun to update the progress here. So without further ado here are my goals:
 

Audiobooks:

 

- Read 100 pages/day

 

Books to choose from:

- Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J. K. Rowling (currently on page 79)
- Read Vieras Perheessä by Rii...
