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 13th and runs through Sunday, May 19th 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 7.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team
I am SO excited to participate in Bout of Books again! My first time was last January and I had a total blast and met tons of lovely bloggers and, of course, read a lot!
I’m MANY MILES FROM HOME until I return from Canada on May 14th, so I won’t participate much until then.
I aim to read at least 5 books, including but not limited to: Blood and Iron by Elizabeth Bear (adult urban fantasy), The Age of Innocence by Edith Wharton (adult literary), The Cadet of Tildor by Alex Lidell (YA fantasy), and Roverandom by JRR Tolkien (children fantasy). Also comics.
I aim to participate in as many Twitter chats as possible.
I aim to participate in as many mini-challenges after the 14th as possible.
