Bout of Books 12: Base Camp

Bout of BooksBout of Books 12 Read-a-Thon has begun!  I’m going to keep this post sticky for the week of the event so that I have a convenient place to track my progress.  I’ll update this post at the end of each day with both daily and cumulative reading reports. As with previous editions of BoB, I’m not going to track hours/minutes spent reading but will track pages read and books completed. The show-runners for the read-a-thon have decided not to post an official linky for goals this time around, to shift the focus away from “success/failure” and more towards reading for fun, and as this seems an admirable aim, I’m not going to set hard goals for myself.  I have a short stack of titles I want to read from, but that’s about as much planning as I intend to do. I’m excited to kick-start the year with some wonderful reads and the community of Bout of Books.  Happy reading to all who are playing along!
