Bout of Books 10 Official Sign Up

I am so excited to announce that I am going to participate in the Bout of Books 10 Read-a-thon.  I would love if you would join me in this read-a-thon.  I chose to do this read-a-thon because it is just after my semester of college ends and I have been dying to read some more books.  Here is the official blurb about the read-a-thon:
The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, May 12th and runs through Sunday, May 18th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure, and the only reading competition is between you and your usual number of books read in a week. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 10 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team
I usually read approximately 200-300 pages in a week so my goals for this read-a-thon are:

1. To participate in all of the challenges and twitter chats 
2. To read at least 200 pages a day (or the Kindle book equivalent) for a total of 1400 pages, or approximately a book a day

Expect at least one post a day from me during this week.  As for the books that I will be reading, I am hoping to get through some of the books that I have received for review as well as continue reading the Lost Books series by Ted Dekker and the Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis.
