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

Not quite as much reading today as yesterday, but still a good day. I’m really enjoying this book… why didn’t I make time to read it sooner?! And the Google+ On Air Chat was great! I really liked that Amanda and Kelly had a Twitter hashtag specifically for the event, because the chat itself only has the “ask a question” button… but none of what I wanted to say were questions. Unfortunately, I had to pause it early on, so I was behind for most of it, and so there were things I wanted to jump in and respond to or comment on, but I felt like there was no point since I wasn’t truly “live.” Next time around I’ll just let it keep running, even if I have to leave the room; I can always go back and watch the replay to catch what I miss.
Who else watched the chat this morning? What did you think?
