Bout of Books 3.0 Starting line and updates

I have once again signed up for the Bout of Books readathon, which starts on Monday. I will update daily on this post, since I will have access to a computer and not use the phone to post, apart from Twitter that is.

Time committed to:Definitely Monday and Tuesday for most of the day. Wednesday - Friday I will be back at work, so not as much time. But then, will be back on the weekend.

Goals:
I would like to read a minimum of 3 books, but will be thrilled with 5 or more. My ideal is to get a bit ahead in my goal to reach 120 books this year. I have quite a few long books on my TBR pile, so will count pages as well.

Books to be read:
I have about 15 books on my TBR pile, and 3 boxes of books in my house belonging to my bookclub, so I wont run out. I won't specify right now what I will read, since typically I specify and then read something totally different!

Good luck with your goals. The hardest part for me was coming up with a list, so I don't blame you for not committing. I'll be anxious to see which ones you eventually pick though.
