It's no secret that I have been slacking in the reading department (I'm actually about 30 books behind in my reading challenge for this year....oops). So when I saw a fellow blogger post about this read-a-thon I knew it would be the perfect thing to help me get back on track.
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, August 13th and runs through Sunday, August 19th 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 5.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. -From the Bout of Books 5.0 team

My pile of books for the read-a-thon contains the following:

Then next weekend when I head down to the coast for the weekend with my dad I will be taking my Kindle with me, so the books I will be reading from that will be:
So there it is! 10 books! Whoa, it'll be a miracle if I get through all of them, but I've got a pretty slow week this week so there is a chance :)
There is still time to sign up and participate. The read-a-thon starts tonight at midnight in whatever time zone you are in. If you would like to check it out, click HERE. Hope to see you there!
