This is one of my favourite read-a-thon's (my other being the 24 hour readathon, among a couple of others) and the start date is creeping up on me. If you want to join, you can still do so.
Here is some information about Bout of Books:
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
I hope that you will be able to join me as well.
Here are the books that I hope to read from:
- The Book of Life
- The Color Purple
- All the Bright Places
- All Quiet on the Western Front
- Vanessa and Her Sister
- Moon over Manifest
- While We're Far Apart
- plus maybe a one or more two books
I know that I won't be able to complete everything on this list, but I can probably at least start or make some headway on most of them.
My goals for Bout of Books 13 are:
- Complete at least two of the books on the list
- Read every day
- Update my blog readers as to what I am up to
- Read at least 600 pages
- Participate in a Twitter chat
- Participate in at least one challenge/giveaway
I also hope to get caught up on book reviews during the week at some point. Hope you all have a great week of reading.
