Pinned: December ➟ January Reading List & BoB!

Dec-Jan

My December list went off the rails, as most of my lists will do. Here’s what’s in the queue for December into January.

  • Revival by Stephen King – To finish two challenges, I need a horror historical fiction. This fits the bill. A elibrary loan.
  • The Two Sams: Ghost Stories by Glen Hirshberg – A reread. One of may favorite books of 2012.
  • Sleights of Mind: What the Neuroscience of Magic Reveals about Our Everyday Deceptions by Stephen L. Macknik, Susana Martinez-Conde, Sandra Blakeslee – Library loan.
  • River City Empire: Tom Dennison’s Omaha by Orville D. Menard – I really do need to finish this book.
  • The Castle of Otranto by Horace Walpole – The January Gothic Challenge read-a-long.
  • Deal Me In stories!

And in January… Bout of Books!

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, and the only reading competition is between you and your usual number of books read in a week. 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

Other than Dewey’s, I believe that Bout of Books was my first readathon. It’s always a good time and it remains one of my favorites. I’ve been pickier lately with my fun, so I’m really, really looking forward to BoB.

  1. It looks like you have a great line-up. I’m really curious about Revival. I’ve loved several of King’s book, while others have left me cold. I’m crossing my fingers that this is a doozy.

    Best of luck with Bout of Books!
