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
This will be my first time doing a Bout of Books read-a-thon but I couldn’t be more excited! What could be better than a week long low key read-a-thon?! Starting this week, I have two very busy weeks in a row so it will be nice to have a relaxing read-a-thon week afterwards. This will also help me finish out my Spring Reading Quarter with a bang! I’ve already well surpassed my book goal for the quarter but would love to blow my quarter record out of the water. My goal in May is to work on reading the books that I own but haven’t read. My main goal for this read-a-thon will be to knock off some of the books I have on my 2015 TBR Pile Challenge list because I’ve been neglecting that list recently. I will do another post outlining my goals and TBR list for the read-a-thon closer to the start date.
Have you ever done a Bout of Books read-a-thon?
