It’s almost Bout of Books time! This will be my third time taking part in this read-a-thon, 4.0 was spectacular for me, 5.0 not so much. But as this one is in the New Year and I want to make a good dent in my to read pile I expect to do better.
What is Bout of Books?
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, January 7th and runs through Sunday, January 13th 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 6.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books 6.0 team
I know that I will be back at college by the time the read-a-thon starts so to make a goal of reading a book a day may be unreachable but I think by the end of the week as long as I’ve finished 7 books I’ll be happy, this means including finishing off books that I’m already part way through at the start of the read-a-thon as well as books read from start to finish during this time. I hope that I wont leave a book unfinished too which’ll help keep things tidy. Outside of reading I’d like to visit a minimum of 10 blogs a day, take part in at least one of the twitter chats and visit every single blog on the wrap up posts like I did during 4.0 – it took well over a week to fit everyone in and no doubt there will be even more members taking part this time but I’d still like to do it again!
