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 13th and runs through Sunday, August 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 5.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog
I’ve decided to take part in this read-a-thon for the same reason I always take part in read-a-thons — to have fun! And also, to see how much reading I can do…which usually isn’t much. I’m not going to set myself huge goals this time. Just something I know is fairly believable for me.
Note: This is a sticky post until the end of this event. All my updates will be added to this very post.
Books I hope to complete.
- The Book Thief by Markus Zusak –> link to review [Completed!]
- Anne’s House of Dreams by L M Montgomery –> link to review [Completed on Monday!]
Book I’m reading aloud with husband. (am not really aiming to complete it this week though I’m hoping to make a sizable dent in it)
- The Pilgrim’s Progress by John Bunyan
Book I might begin should first two be completed.
- Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier
