Challenge accepted: Bout of Books read-a-thon
1. August 2013 § Hinterlasse einen Kommentar
Summer is the perfect time to get into some reading challenges. I already have participated in a Bout of books read-a-thon this year despite being busy with work and school. Still I cleared all the goals I had set for myself, which means this time I’m going to aim even higher.
time devoted to reading: I’m planning on reading the whole week (from August 19th to August 25th), each day for a couple of hours.
my goals: I want to read at least four books and listen to one audio poem collection. My library has a huge collection of poetry-CDs, often even read by the author himself/herself, and I always tell myself I ought to listen to them all. So this is the perfect opportunity to go ahead and try. As for languages I’m going to read at least one book in English – maybe even all of them, depends on the books I’m going to be interested in two weeks from now. Poetry will probably be in German.
books to read: I don’t want to specify which books I’ll be reading yet. Last time I didn’t stay true to my list anyway.
EXTRA: I’m a fan of social media, but haven’t gotten into Twitter so much. It seems it is a big thing in the English-speaking areas but I haven’t found anything too thrilling in German so far. So, in order to lose my suspicions I’m challenging myself to at least tweet once a day. Maybe I’ll be able to find some new interesting blogs this way as well. That’d be totally awesome.
