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

That was quite a first day! I wasn’t sure if I’d finish my book or not, but I made it! And that chat… oh, man. Bout of Books chats are always intense, but with the participation numbers still climbing – and pretty much blowing away all previous Bouts of Books – this one was in another league! And yet I still managed to get through it mostly having a good time, with just a tiny part of me feeling guilty over all the tweets I wasn’t reading. I mean, I learned a long time ago I’m never going to be able to read everything, but this… well, it was something else. If you’ve done Bout of Books chats before, and you were here today, you know what I mean.
So that was my Day One. How was yours?
