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, January 7th and runs through Sunday, January 13th 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 6.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books 6.0 team
I attempted to do Bout of Books, I failed miserably. I challenged myself to 1o books so that I could work on catching up on my TBR pile. Not even one book was finished.
The second half of 2012 was pretty stressful for me, but with this year ending and 2013 just beginning I've made one of my resolutions to stress less and take more time for the things I love. So what better way to start that than with a read-a-thon since I love reading.
Even though I didn't make even the slightest dent in my challenge last time, I'm sticking with trying to get 10 books done the week of the read-a-thon. The books are still to be decided, but I am behind in review books so that might be what I will focus on.
I hope to see you participating in the read-a-thon as well!
