It’s time for another read-a-thon!

bout of books 23 Aug 20-26 2018

The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda Shofner and Kelly Rubidoux Apple. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, August 20th and runs through Sunday, August 26th 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 23 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team

This is my fifth time participating in Bout of Books. It may be my favourite read-a-thon. Why? It’s so chill. The goal is simply to read. As much as you can. There’s no strict number of pages or books or hours to aim for. It’s not stressful. Just encouraging. You can see my past Bout of Books participation here.

My Bout of Books TBR

I’m about 8 books behind on my reading goal of 100 books this year. I’m hoping that this round of Bout of Books will help me catch up.

So, I’m aiming to read a whole boatload of graphic novels.

I’ve also got some novels to read for review and some short children’s chapter books I’ve been meaning to read for a while. (If you look at my last few Bout of Books TBRS, you’ll see these Roald Dahl books there too!)

Last but not least, I’ll also have an audio book to listen to when I drive – gotta get as much reading in as possible – I’m just not sure yet what that book will be. Stay tuned!

Follow my reading progress and my participation in fun challenges on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram each day or here on the blog through out the week.
