Stretch Goal

It's the last day of the readathon, so today's challenge is to take a look at the goals you set for the week (if you have them) and decide a) how you can stretch yourself to complete them or b) how you can revise them so you can meet them. Because yes, you can revise your goals! If you didn't set goals for the week, set a small one for yourself today!

Instagram Photo a Day

For those of you who use Instagram, don't forget to post your daily Bout of Books photo. Find out more on our Bout of Books Instagram page!


The way these updates work is that you post whatever you want your fellow readathoners to see TODAY. Whether that's your progress for the previous day, your contribution to today's challenge, an incredibly witty tweet about the book you're reading, or a hygge reading picture you posted on Instagram, link it here. The linky will be open for 24 hours. There will be another linky tomorrow for you to recap the entire readathon. Please include a DIRECT LINK to your update so we don't have to go clicking around to find it.

If you have questions, please tweet us @boutofbooks or email us (boutofbooks at gmail dot com).


  1. For me to revise my goals in order to meet them, I would literally have to remove like 10 books from my list. haha. But I'm not going to do that. I ended up setting a big goal for myself this time because I've started listening to audiobooks and I've been pushing out reviews a lot quicker than normal. It's no secret that I'm a super slow reader so listening to the books has helped out a bunch. Even though I won't meet my initial goal, I HAVE read more books that I would normally read during BoB so even if I don't finish the one I'm reading now, I'm happy with what I've done. :)

  2. I had no goals. I decided that I would just read when I had time. I read some magazines, as well. I am on page 110 of The Arabian Nights today. That's what I was able to contribute. I also listened to quite a bit of Inheritance in the Christopher Paolini dragonrider series while I commute 1.5 hours each way to my first job.
