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

I’m pretty satisfied with my reading time for today. The book I’m less sure of. I’ve just reached the end of Part I. It’s good reading, and I’m… intrigued… but not really engaged. I’ll reserve further judgement until I’m finished, though.
I couldn’t join in the Twitter chat today, which is disappointing. Even if I wasn’t busy during the one o’clock hour, though, I would have been trying to keep up on my phone, and I have a feeling that just wouldn’t have worked at all. I’ll see about the others later in the week, but they might not work out either. We’ll see.
Fellow Bout of Books-ers, how did you do on Day One?
