Bout of Books Read-a-Thon!

Bout of Books

As I mentioned in my April Wrap Up post, I’m going to be participating in the Bout of Books Read-a-Thon. For those of you who don’t know what that is, here’s a little blurb for y’all:

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 first heard about this through Joey’s post at Another Afterthought. Basically, you get to set challenges for yourself throughout the read-a-thon. If you normally read one book each week, challenge yourself and read as many as 5 books! I’m going to be posting updates on my progress during the actual read-a-thon. Comment down below if you’re joining! 😀

  1. Happy to see you signed up! You’re pretty beast if you’re gunning for 5+ (or maybe I’m just a newbie reader .__.)

    Either way, there are also challenges/discussions you can partake in on blogs/twitter during the course of the read-a-thon. I’m not sure what to expect as it’s my first time as well but I certainly hope you enjoy the experience!

    Cheers,
