I'm Participating in Bout of Books 13!

I am going to participate in my very first read-a-thon next week. In their own words:

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 11th and runs through Sunday, May 17th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 13 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog.

Basically, the point is just to make an effort to read more during that week. It's not necessary to set goals to participate in the read-a-thon but I want to. I want to finish an audio book, an e-book, and a physical book.

I am currently listening to The Cuckoo's Calling by Robert Galbraith on audio book during my commute. I want to finish this one and start The Silkworm, the next in the series. 

I also want to read The Sky Is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson, but might have to wait on that one. I have an e-book copy on hold from the library so if it becomes available by next week I'll read that one.

and I want to read a physical book but I'm not sure which one right now. I have been reading through a lot of the books I own that I hadn't read, and there's nothing I'm too excited about left in my "to be read" pile so I don't want to commit to anything just yet, I'll wait and see what I'm feeling like next week. Lately I've been very into mysteries and graphic novels so I might try to pick up something in that vein this weekend.

There are some challenges next week that go with the read-a-thon so I might participate in some of those, and I'll definitely post an update next week and once the challenge is over.
