Bout of Books 8.0


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. - From the Bout of Books team

Sounds like a lot of fun! This will be the first time I have ever participated in any sort of read-a-thon, so I am a tad anxious. And also excited! Want to sign up/learn about the rules and schedule(s)? Go here:

Bout of Books


1. Read at least three books

Three books a week is relatively average for me, so I feel like this is a safe goal to set. Since this is my first Read-A-Thon, I am going to take it easy on myself and go with the flow. If I happen to read more than three books? Awesome!

2. Complete a series

I have a ton of books on my TBR shelf that are final books in a series; ones that I just cannot bring myself to read for whatever reason. My goal is to finish at least one of them.

3. Read at least 3-3 1/2 hours a day

I easily put in an hour and a half, Monday-Friday, at work; so I figure two more hours on top of that should be no big deal.

And that is it! Like I said before, I am not really in any hurry to


or anything, so there is not much I am looking to accomplish during this Read-A-Thon except to have fun and enjoy the company of my fellow readers. :) Good luck to all of those participating!
