Readathon

Bout of Books 10!

So, I’m just finding out about Bout of Books via Books Speak Volumes and thought I’m going to read anyway! Why not! Woohoo! Also, I am having surgery this Thursday (ugh–tonsils!) and will likely lose a whole day or more but I’m going to try anyhow. If you’re wondering just what that is exactly…

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 12th and runs through Sunday, May 18th 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 10 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team

 

Time Devoted to Reading:

I will be reading before/after work, and as much as possible post-surgery.

  2. Participate in at least one challenge 
  3. Participate in one Twitter chat if my schedules allow
  4. Interact with others at least a handful of times each day
  5. Follow at least 5 new blogs
  6. Make new friends!
