It’s that time of year again! The Bout of Books read-a-thon is here! This will be my first year participating in Bout of Books and I’m pretty pumped about it. If you are not familiar with this particular read-a-thon, here’s what’s going down:
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
Typically, I don’t read very quickly but I work well under pressure, and I’m two books behind my reading goal for the year, so I’m hoping that participating in Bout of Books 10.0 can help me get over that hump. This week I plan to read three books. For me, that’s a lot but I am looking forward to it! I don’t want to set a strict TBR for this read-a-thon, I am just going to read whatever is interesting.
Are you participating in the Bout of Books read-a-thon? What are you planning to read? Have you had success in the past or is this your first go at it?
I’ll post later this week about my progress. Happy reading!
