Bout of Books

It’s time for another Bout of Books! This will be my second one, and I’m SO excited. It’s a wonderful readathon, complete with a few Twitter chats that are really fun (and greatly broadened by bookish social media circles)! Not heard of Bout of Books?? Well…

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 22nd and runs through Sunday, August 28th 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 17 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team

Essentially, you get to set your own goals for this Read-a-Thon and the gist is to just read more than you might usually during the week. Last time around, I set my goal to read 2 hours per day, or 14 hours for the week. Audiobooks on my commute really helped!!! I got so much reading done and had a ton of fun on Twitter & in the blogosphere. If you’re interested, GO SIGN UP HERE! You won’t regret the decision. Promise. You can also find them on Twitter here.

Now back to cleaning…and reading Jane Steele by Lyndsay Faye.

Let me know in the comments if you’ll be participating!
