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

Phew! Still coming down from Heart-Shaped Box… but my thoughts on that can wait till Sunday. (Spoiler alert: it’s good!) As for other Bout of Books business, I skipped one of the challenges today. (*gasp!*) After not doing any challenges in my earlier Bouts of Books, I’ve gotten to really like them and look forward to them. But a scavenger hunt just isn’t my thing. I’m more a fan of the challenges that you get to see what different people come up with, rather than just looking for the right answer. But the other one was a lot of fun… though the indigo/violet was giving me some trouble and I’m still pretty sure it’s not right (I just picked two different shades of purple and called it good).
Here comes the weekend! What are everyone’s Bout-of-Books (or non-Bout-of-Books) plans for these last couple days?
