Bout of Books 8.0

Bout of Books


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!

  1. Oooh, your the one hosting the Challenge that I was most keen on reading more about: New Bout of Books blogs!! Is this going to be a showcase piece about which of us 8.0's are *new!* to the Bout!? I was thinking that that was a wicked sweet thing to do!!

    Despite being a newbie to the Read-A-Thon, it was the May one that perked my interest to join once I was able to launch my blog!! :) I am not even stressing about not being able to join in on the social chatter via Twitter,... I had a feeling I'd be spending most of my time soaking into the books I challenged myself to read; with the spare moments dropping by blogs & partipating in the Challenges that appealed to me! :)
