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 13th and runs through Sunday, May 19th 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 7.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. –From the Bout of Books team

Also, I visited the following blogs…
… and (sort of) participated in the second Twitter chat.
Today was a pretty good day, at least until my internet went out and I had to do all my planned evening activities on my phone. The chat consisted of reading just a fraction of the tweets, and not responding to anyone other than to answer the questions. I also had to finalize my update post here (luckily it was mostly done, including my comment links, I just had to fill in the blanks for time, page count, etc).
Of course, two minutes after I finished publishing it with my phone, the internet comes back. Bravo on the timing, MediaCom. Bra-freakin’-vo.
I’m extra upset because I won’t be around for Saturday’s Twitter chat, and I was really looking forward to tonight’s. Oh well. Can’t dwell on these things.
