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 18th and runs through Sunday, August 24th 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 11 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team
I'm hoping to read at least two or three books during this read-a-thon. I don't want to make my TBR outrageous, and set myself up for failure like I did last time, so I'm simply going to keep my pile light.
I want to visit at least 5 new blogs everyday and leave comments on those. I'm hoping to participate in a few challenges since they look like they'll be a lot of fun; my progress will be updated on Twitter with: #boutofbooks
