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

I think I might have done the challenge wrong. The instructions said, “You can choose first name, initials, your birthday month, or your zodiac sign.” When I first read it, I was reading those as examples of things to use, not a restriction… and I wanted to do something different than everyone else was doing. But then I realized maybe everyone else was doing it because we were supposed to. Oh well, it was fun anyway. Today was a pretty low-key day, a good breather in the middle of the read-a-thon.
Bout of Books is now over halfway through. How’s everyone doing so far?
