Bout of Books 12.0

Bout of Books

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, January 5th and runs through Sunday, January 11th 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 12 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team

I’m going to do Bout of Books 12.0!  I did 10.0 last spring, and I loved it, and (in a huge coincidence) I don’t have to work throughout the entire run of 12.0! I’m hoping that it will help me get out of my reading slump and get into gear for 2015.

I am not making any goals, and I think I’ll have family and friends in and out during that week.  I will try to update every day that week, unless I have another post scheduled.  I can’t wait to get started!

Are you planning on participating?


Happy (Early) New Year! Looking Forward…

My, my – it’s certainly been a while.

This week will be the start of 2015.  I’ve decided against resolutions this year, for a few reasons.  First, I can never stick to them anyway.  Second, there are going to be a lot of changes happening over the next year, so rather than setting goals for how I’d like to change independently of those, I think it makes a lot more sense to change along with them.  I will set a reading goal, but that will be a different post!

I was accepted to medical school a few months ago (!!!!!) and I’ve decided to make that journey a part of this blog.  I’m not naive enough to think that I’ll be able to maintain my reading habits in medical school or through the moving process, so I’ve struggled with how to manage this blog going forward.  What I’m hoping to do is to return to my previous posting schedule (Tuesdays and Fridays), at least until August or so (it may change then subject to my class schedule).  However, rather than posting mostly about books, I’m planning to post once a week about books and once a week about medical school related stuff.  This is going to be an incredible journey, and even if no one else cares, I’d like to have it recorded just for me!

I hope that you all have a wonderful New Year!
