I had a lot of great posts on my to-do list last week…and then ACOWAR was released and I did nothing but read all week (well, aside from the usual day job and such).

BUT–I’m so glad Kristilyn at Reading in Winter posted her Bout of Books Read-a-thon post and reminded me that Bout of Books starts tomorrow. Thanks Kristilyn!

I discovered Bout of Books last year and thought it was so fun and so neat. I’ve since added all the upcoming dates to my calendar because I don’t want to miss out again.

What is Bout of Books, you ask?Bout of Books

The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda Shofner and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, May 8th and runs through Sunday, May 14th 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 19 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team

Read-a-thons are a great way to tackle that ever-growing TBR. And the best part of Bout of Books, is that it’s not stressful. There are no rules about how much you need to read. It’s simply about the joy of reading and connecting with other readers. All the challenges are optional, and usually not super difficult.

What I plan on reading for Bout of Books

I have a bunch of books from the library right now and my goal is to read those this week so I can get them back to the library for the other folks waiting on them. If I finish these books, I’ll start tackling some of the books I’ve recently received for review.
