I’ve never participated in this particular event before, but have seen lots of bloggers do it. Bout of Books always sounds like so much fun! I mean, a week dedicated to reading? While this is probably a normal week for me, making it OFFICIAL sounds super fun!
First off…. 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
Next, here are some “goals” I’d like to accomplish during my Bout of Books week (I put goals in “” marks because c’mon… I suck at goals):
- Read at least 1 hour every evening before bed
- Listen to an audiobook at the gym
- Finish 3 books on my “Bout of Books” Goodreads list
- Participate in discussions and chats on Twitter
Okay, this is on my calendar folks! It’s official now! Can’t wait to get started!
