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 11th and runs through Sunday, May 17th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 13 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team
Yay, it’s Read-a-Thon time! Bout of Books 13 starts on Monday, and I am once again going to participate. I am going to set a smallish (but more realistic) goal, in the hopes that I won’t be exhausted from work and will actually get some reading done. Here’s hoping! I will, as always, accept any and all cheering on you’d like to give me!
Obviously I am not planning on reading all of these! My goal is to read three of them, plus listen to Cress, which is an audiobook I’ve been working on for a stupidly long time. I won’t finish Cress, but I would like to make a dent in the second half (I’m halfway through as of right now). Never Fade is being read as part of a read-along with a couple of my Tumblr friends, so it will definitely be finished. We’ll see which others strike my fancy when the time comes to choose a new book!
Since I want this to be low-key, with a focus on reading, I won’t be doing too many challenges or other extraneous activities. As of right now, I’d like to:
- read  books
- participate in  challenges
- chart my progress on my Twitter, Tumblr, and Instagram. (Tag will be #boutofbooks for all three platforms.)
So that’s that! Are any of you participating in Bout of Books? If so, please link me to your posts! I’d love to cheer you on!
