2nd Annual Love For Books Read-A-Thon

Monday, February 09, 2015 with 5 comments

So the 2nd annual Love for Books Read-a-thon starts today, and I thought I'd sign up and give it a go. Granted, I've recently started reading Outlander for a challenge I'm a part of (HERE), so my real goal is just to finish it as it's pretty long (but very good!). Still, I'm hoping that reading it for this read-a-thon will help me focus on it more, and get through it with enough time in the month to read some of my library books, before starting on book two, Dragonfly In Amber, in March.

I am reading Outlander on my Kindle, since it was free on Amazon once upon a time. At the start of this challenge, I was already 35% through it. My goal is just to finish the book, as it's pretty long.

I pre-ordered a hardcover edition of The Ruby Circle on Amazon immediately after I finished the series last year. I'd like to finish Outlander before starting this one, but I shall make no promises. Also, I haven't yet decided if I'm going to re-read the series before starting this one, since I read them at the end of last year & might not really need the re-fresher, but I haven't decided. This book is acting as my back-up goal, since I'm not even sure if I'll finish Outlander by the time this event ends. I'm crossing my fingers, though!

  1. I am participating! And wow, what a goal to pick Outlander. I have all of the books and still haven't read them. Good luck!

  2. Jamie beat Claire?! Well, that's a spoiler hahaha

    1. LOL - sorry!!! That was mostly for me, since that is all I could think about after reading that scene...I didn't really think it was much of a spoiler, but I shall hide it with white text that can only be read by highlighting it (until someone reads the comments XP)

  3. Thanks for participating, Kimberly! You have a lovely blog, btw :)


Thank you for stopping by! Your comments are truly appreciated, and I always try to respond to each of you at your own blogs. Have an awesome day! :)
