From the Bout of Books team: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 19th and runs through Sunday, August 25th 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 8.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog.
This is my second time participating in Bout of Books. This was one of my favorite events this year. It is totally laid back which is particularly good this time around - my younger son will be going to school for the first time ever on the first day of the read-a-thon. It's going to be an interesting transition to say the least so the only goal I have is to read 4 books. I hope that I can participate in another Twitter party but I'm not stressing that.
One new thing this time is that I'm hosting a challenge on Sunday, the 25th, so make sure you visit so you can win a prize!
