Bout of Books Goals

As I mentioned earlier today I'm going to be participating in the Bout of Books and you can check the blog out for more information here.  So here are my goals for my very first bout of books!

Bout of Books

Time Devoted to Reading

Two hours a day hopefully. It's my first week of school so I can't just douse myself in reading like I'd love to be doing. :) Some of the books on my list I have as audiobooks so that might make it easier. 

My Goals

To read/finish five books. 

Books I Hope to Read

  • Hamlet (finish) by William Shakespeare
  • Macbeth by William Shakespeare
  • Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare
  • Bridge on the River Kwai by Pierre Boulle
  • Our Mutual Friend (Finish) by Charles Dickens
  • Harry Potter (not sure how many) by J.K. Rowling
  • Time Machine by H.G. Wells

  1. First of all, good luck with your first week of school. Secondly: great books! Hope Harry Potter is as magical as ever. I've rented the audio book of Romeo and Juliet yesterday. I know the story but I have never read (or in this case listened) to it. Hope you meet your goals and good luck, Lois!

    1. Thank you! I know the story of Romeo and Juliet as well but have yet to read/listen to it. In some ways though I already feel like I have as I have read many abridged versions of it.

  2. Yeay for Harry Potter! Happy reading and good luck :D


  3. I sense a decidedly Shakespearean theme to your reading goals! My favourite work of Shakespeare so far would definitely be Julius Caesra :) Curious to hear your thoughts! Enjoy the week reading whoop.

    1. I read Julius Ceaser when I was in high school and I remember enjoying it. I'm trying to complete Shakespeare's most famous works that I haven't already read yet before I get down to his more obscure works.

  4. Good luck with your first week of school. Hopefully you will be able to squeeze some reading in

    1. Thanks! I sure hope to.... probably I'll squeeze in more than I should. ;)

  5. Hooray for Bout of Books during a busy week! Your school year has started, and mine is just two weeks away from starting - which means lots of time getting my classroom ready. Audiobooks are a great idea (especially for Shakespeare). That may be the only way I get any reading in this week! :)

    1. I forgot you were a teacher! Good luck with that this year. :)
