The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda Shofner and Kelly Rubidoux Apple. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, August 20th and runs through Sunday, August 26th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional.

Challenge #7 created by Bout of Books. 
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!

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. :)
