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, August 19th and runs through Sunday, August 25th 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 8.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team.
- Read 3 – 4 books. This is super ambitious for me, as awful as that may sound. I’ve been reading a book every week or so this summer, so even if I read 2 books this week I’ll be happy. I have to work all day next Saturday as well, so that takes away a whole day.
- Be involved on Twitter and other blogs – commenting, Tweeting, all that jazz.
- Participate in at least one challenge
So those are my condensed goals. As for my TBR this week, I’m giving myself plenty of options…
The Beginning of Everything by Robyn Schneider
Claim to Fame by Margaret Peterson Haddix
Vicious Little Darlings by Katherine Easer
Unraveling by Elizabeth Norris
The Selection by Kiera Cass
Burn for Burn by Siobhan Vivian and Jenny Han
I might start reading one of these today because I’m not reading anything right now, so is that cheating? Anyway, I’m sure this list will change as I go along, but if I just manage to get a couple of these read, I’ll be happy. Are you participating in Bout of Books? I’d love to see what you’re planning to read – let me know in the comments!
