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

Well, my first novel was sort of a bust. Not a great way to start the readathon. So I decided to pick up something light and fluffy and completely different, so the Lauren Graham novel it is. I don’t expect this to be a new favorite, but it should be a fun read.
I also got to participate in (most of) the Twitter chat tonight, though I did have to cut out early because my brother and his family stopped by. It was fun, and I’m finally starting to get over the need to read every. single. tweet. and just go with it. Saturday’s chat may or may not happen for me, so I was glad to join in this one.
I’m a whopping 25 pages into the new book, so I’m hoping tomorrow I can get through a good chunk of that.
