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
I’ve never participated in any read-a-thons other than Dewey’s, mostly because I read all the time anyway, but I found out about Bout-Of Books early enough to join in this time! YAY!
I’m taking it pretty easy on goals, because you know, reading should be fun right?! Right.
- Finish The Little Stranger on audiobook (a not so subtle reminder to myself that work is much more fun when I’m listening!)
- Read at least two review books (of my choice)
- Read at least two TBR/want it now books
I’ve been in a bit of a reading slump – not in terms of having trouble reading per se, but in failing to get interested in books that I should like/love (sequels, stuff I’ve had on my wishlist etc), so I’ve been doing a lot of really random reading lately rather than scheduled stuff. I’m going to allow that to continue because again, this is supposed to be fun, and I’m supposed to like reading.
So there you have it! Are you joining in for the week? What are your goals?
