Next week is Bout of Books time again! This is my favorite readathon. I love being able to have an excuse to read all week long. The last round I only participated unofficially because I had been battling a reading slump but I’m 100% back in the reading game so I’m really looking forward to this one. If you haven’t participated or heard about Bout of Books and are wondering about it… check out this info from the Bout of Books blog.
The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda Shofner and Kelly Rubidoux Apple. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, August 19th and runs through Sunday, August 25th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, Twitter chats, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 26 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team
This round I’m only setting two goals for myself just to keep things a little more flexible. I want to read as much as I can but I know that things tend to come up so I don’t want to set myself up for disappointment lol. I don’t really have a TBR set at this point. Me being a mood reader I probably won’t make one at all or I will wait until day one of the readathon to post one.
Bout of Books 26 Goals:
- Read at least one novel and one graphic novel.
- Read at least 30 minutes every night in addition to my lunch hour at work.
