Bout of Books 26

Yes! It’s Bout of Books time! Are you participating? I’ve participated in about 8 out of the 26 round. I’m soo excited to start this one! My reading plans for this event is to mainly finish One Bad Apple and to make a lot of progress in Moby Dick. I also hope to post some backlog reviews! My favorite part of these events is the community, so hopefully I can meet some new bloggers and finish the challenges!

I'm an avid reader and love most all books, but my favorite genres tend to be mystery, adventure, science fiction and classics. Genres I tend to shy away from include romance, contemporary fiction and chick lit. If I’m not actually reading books, I’m probably at work shelving them at my local library.
