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, August 19th and runs through Sunday, August 25th 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 8.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. –From the Bout of Books team
It’s that time again. Bout of Books doesn’t start for another two weeks, but you can sign up now.
Loose goals… to read and to socialize. (I told you they were loose.) What I’ll read that week will be partially determined by what I read in the next couple weeks, so I can’t really make a list just yet. And as for socializing… last time I completely burned myself out with my strict guidelines, so this time around I’m not going to stress too much over it. Hopefully I’ll be able to join in a Twitter chat or two, maybe do a challenge this time around, and while I do plan to look for new-to-me blogs to connect with, I’m taking a more laid back approach.
Have you done Bout of Books? Or any read-a-thon? What’s your favorite part?
