Even though I’ve never participated in Bout of Books I’ve watched my twitter feed flood with happy and excited book lovers and decided that this go round I would participate!

Octavia your excitement is contagious! What is Bout of Books and how do I join?!

What a very good question voice inside my head! And what better way to answer than with the official Bout of Books description?!

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

  1. OOOoo those books look fun.  I’m excited to see what you think of Spellcaster.  Idk if I want to read it or not yet.  Good luck with your goals. Can’t wait for this to start!

  2. That sounds like a nice, low-pressure, read-a-thon. 🙂 I may have to check it out. The Dewey’s 24 hr read-a-thon was a lot of fun, but Whew! it was a lot of work. And I only got ONE book read.
    Good luck on your goal! I can’t wait to hear how it goes.

  3. I seriously failed at the Dewey read-a-thon! But I’m hoping Bout of Books is as simple as I think it is. I need “low-pressure” right now. 🙂
