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.
I have never taken part in Bout of Books before, but I have really enjoyed taking part in readathons this year, and think this is a great idea! I’m not sure which books I’ll be reading yet, but I will definitely post a list before the readathon starts.
For those of you that have taken part before, what should I expect? Are you doing it too?
In the meantime, here is my current ‘books for review’ piles. Which ones should I put on the readathon list?
