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 12th and runs through Sunday, May 18th 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 10 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team
Bout of Books is next week!
Here’s what I’m reading:
- The Target, David Baldacci
- Heart-Shaped Box, Joe Hill
- Sight Reading, Daphne Kalotay
- Firestarter, Stephen King
- A Monster Calls, Patrick Ness
- The River of No Return, Bee Ridgeway
- Big Red Tequila, Rick Riordan
No, I’m not going to be reading a book a day, but having options is never a bad thing. I’ll probably read three or four of these. I’ll do at least one Twitter chat, probably more. Maybe a few challenges. Some blog hopping.
Honestly, I’ve been feeling pretty blah this week, which is why this goals post is as short (and lacking in enthusiasm) as it is. I’m really hoping that next week will be better… otherwise this is going to be the most lackluster Bout of Books ever.
Who else is doing Bout of Books?
