Bout of Books Read-a-Thon

Bout of Books is a week long readathon in which we try and read some books and get Amanda into Twitter jail. For more information go to the official Bout of Books blog. It’s a normal working week for me so I won’t be reading much more than normal but I hope to be a bit more sociable. I’ve been in a bit of a blog bubble recently and need to get out and about more!

My Goals
Avoid the Curse of the Readathon. Really, as soon as I do an organised event, I suddenly lose the ability to read at least…oh look shiny things *paw*
Read 5 books, or 3 books and a large, scary tome.
Help get Amanda into Twitter jail.
Discover some new blogs and bloggers.

Books To Read (subject to me changing my mind)
Railsea by China Mieville
The Somnambulist by Essie Fox
The Bellwether Revivals by Benjamin Wood
Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver
The Lifeboat by Charlotte Rogan
