Bout of Books Read-A-Thon

Bout of Books Read-a-Thon

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

Bout of Books info:

  • Bout of Books is a week long read-a-thon, run from 12:01am on Monday, August 13th through 11:59pm Sunday, August 19th in whatever time zone you are in.
  • Bout of Books is low pressure, meaning participants are only asked to push themselves to read more than they normally would during any given week. There is no competition between readers.
  • How much time a reader wants, and can commit, to read, tweet, or network with fellow bloggers is left to individual preference. All challenges and giveaways are optional.
  • Networking with fellow bloggers is actively encouraged, though never required. Co-hosts are there to facilitate blog hopping and interaction between participants.
  • Use Twitter to post updates throughout the read-a-thon. Everyone will be tweeting with the #boutofbooks hashtag.

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

    (I can't get the picture to rotate for the life of it's staying like that...)

    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 HEREHope to see you there!
