The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda Shofner and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, August 21st and runs through Sunday, August 27th 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 20 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team
It’s been a loooooong time since I’ve done Bout of Books. I’ve always loved this readathon but it typically falls on weeks I can’t participate: teacher workweek, testing season, etc. I didn’t really pay attention to the dates when they were first announced and imagine my surprise when I saw that it was happening this week and I’m free! I still have quite a few things going on this week as it is my last week of summer, but I’m giving it a go anyway.
All my updates will be found here, keeping it simple this year.
Monday – Finished Kiss Don’t Tell. Eh.
Tuesday – Spent the majority of the day listening to Born a Crime. It’s fascinating and I’ve learned some stuff to and highly suggest you check it out.
So far things are not quite in my favor this week. Tomorrow I’m heading up to Dulles to drop my cousin off so we’ll be spending the day in DC being nerdy. Thursday I’ll be spending some time helping my cousin with her three kids (she is currently injured). So far though the weekend seems mostly free!
Wednesday -Finished Beauty of Us. Pretty good.
