Goal Updates (2/10):
- I will read for at least 60 minutes each day, including at least 4 straight hours on at least one day.
- 4 hours straight were accomplished on Day 1! Thanks, bank holidays!
- I will finish a book which I am currently reading.
- Gilded Cage was not intended for this goal, but I did start it before the readathon and finish it on day 1! I’m still hoping that I can get through a book for work… This is looking like a Weekend activity.
- I will read one book from start to finish.
- Akata Witch will be it! I just… need to read more.
- I will participate actively on Twitter and on my blog.
- Day one and two. CHECK! I haven’t been this regularly active on Twitter ever. I am pretty hot and cold with it.

Share a vision board of what you’re trying to accomplish! Use the hashtags #BoB2017Goals and #boutofbooks and let us cheer you on!
My Tweets were adequate, I will admit. But, I covered everything in my other blog post yesterday. I am really excited for my 2017 goals, and I can’t wait to make progress on them. I did point out that my “bookshelf” for this readathon is my Kindle. I am trying to make a dent in my electronic TBR. It’s so easy to read my physical books because they are more present.
Upcoming Day 3 Goals
