It’s that time of year again! Bout of Books is back. I’ll be participating in my third Bout of Books Read-a-thon from August 21 to August 27. Do you want to challenge yourself to read more than you usually do? Sign up for Bout of Books too.

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, August 21st and runs through Sunday, August 27th 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 20 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team

The lovely part of this read-a-thon is that it is low pressure – there are no rules to follow or book/page counts to achieve. And, the community who participates are incredibly nice.

I’m planning to:

  • read a lot
  • join a Twitter chat
  • do as many challenges as I can

My Goal: read more than I usually do during a usual week (which means no more Toy Blast – a ridiculously addictive mobile phone game…I’m on Level 580…).

I’ll post updates on my reading progress on Twitter with #BoutofBooks. Stay tuned for my TBR post later this week and some read-a-thon challenge posts next week.
