Life has been hectic here. I plan on attempting to participate in the round 15 of bout of books week long read a thon this week.

It comes at a good time. I start my student teaching next week, and think that my reading time will be very limited afterwards. 

Not sure what I plan on reading. However I plan to start with the following titles:


 Black Hills by Dam Simmons of which I am currently about 200 pages from the end. 

Abbadon's Gate by James S. A. Corey. This is the third book in the expanse series. Elengil and I are listening to it together, and we have about 16 hours and 30 minute left in it. 

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 4th and runs through Sunday, January 10th 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 15 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team

3. War of the Wizards - A World of Lone Wolf RPG fantasy book - I've been collecting these used since high school so I was super exited to find this one at the friends of the library booksale nook. Hopefully it isn't a double copy but the others are currently packed up in storage.
