I love this read-a-thon... It is always so much fun! I am going to miss Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-thon this time around, so I am doubly glad to do Bout of Books again. This is my 5th Bout of Books - and #4 in a row! But what is it all about?
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
That is really it in a nutshell. I will post a "Master Page" for the read-a-thon on Monday, May 12th. This is where I will update with what I've read each day. I'll pick out a stack of reading "options" a little closer to the start... but I've decided that I don't really like to set a goal around the number of books read. Back in January for Bout of Books 9.0, I read 1,476 pages, and I'd like to beat that. So, my goal for BoB 10.0 will be to read 1,500 pages.
So head on over to the Bout of Books page and sign up for the fun too!
