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, January 6th and runs through Sunday, January 12th 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 9.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team
Bout of Books is starting a week from today. As usual, I don’t have any set goal for time spent reading. I’d like to get through at least three books. Four would be better. Five would be incredible.
These are the books I plan to choose from:
- The Omega Project, Steve Alten
- Lost in a Good Book, Jasper Fforde
- Run to Ground, D.P. Lyle
- SecondWorld, Jeremy Robinson
- Code Name Verity, Elizabeth Wein
As for the social side of things, the last time that I set specific goals for visiting and commenting on new blogs, I burned myself out really quickly. So I’ll leave that part of it up in the air. I’m hoping I’ll be able to make it to all three Twitter chats, though; that’ll be a first, if I can manage it.
I’m also hosting a challenge for the first time!
I think I’m about as ready as I can be. Now it’s just waiting for it to start…
