bout of books starting line

i am participating in the bout of books read-a-thon that started today... stay tuned because wednesday i am hosting a giveaway along with co-host actin' up with books where i will be giving away a copy of witch craft which is full of all kinds of halloween diy projects [you have to sign up for the read-a-thon to enter so go ahead and do that here if you are interested]

my goals:
  • read the girl's guide to starting your own business which has been sitting in my hoarder room for a few years untouched to try to get some motivation for the business side of my photography
  • read through and pick out favorite ideas from the pocket muse to help me prepare for NaNoWriMo... i thought i had so many ideas for a book and now that i'm actually going to try it i'm drawing a complete blank, one week to prepare myself before i have to get started!
  • i'll update you guys tomorrow on my status here when i put up the official giveaway post
p.s. the above photo is from my first installment of "bookish" go check out the full post on my photo blog


  1. good luck with the read-a-thon! :) haha when I was younger, I participated in one, but I didn't exactly understand the idea, I thought, for every book I read, somebody was going to donate a certain amount of money to a charity, so I read, and read, and ended up with 100+ books. (I wasn't very old so they were easy books), then one day near the end of the read-a-thon, a friend asked me how many sponsors I had and I kind of went blank and... 'oh...'.
