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 11th and runs through Sunday, May 17th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 13 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team
The end of the week will get a little busy for me as my graduation ceremony is on Friday. But I should be able to fit some good reading time all around that. But I kind of need this right now. As soon as my classes ended last week, I sort of went nuts requesting all the books I didn't have time to read.... and they have now all arrived. I still have my overstuffed TBR bookcase in my room, and now I also have piles of library books too. And I haven't really been in the reading mood. I've been watching TV which I never do. Granted, I'm watching movies I've seen over and over again instead of stupid shows - but I'm not sure that is really a positive spin. Bottom line - I need to get back into reading. Therefore: Bout of Books.
I will have a "Master Post" set to go on Monday, and I'll just keep updating that as the week goes on. I'm not even going to set a challenging goal or anything... if this helps me get my reading mojo back, then I'll be happy. Besides, graduation!
