I love this read-a-thon. It’s the only one I remember to do and I believe the only one that I’ve actually participated in. For those that don’t know what Bout of Books is… here you go:
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
Like I said before this is the only one I seem to do. I have done it 4 times. For the Bout of Books 12 I managed to read 7 books and 2,107 pages! I am really hoping I am that successful this year as I am no where near a reading slump currently. Other years I was pretty consistent with #13 reading 2 books and 751 pages, #17 reading 1 book, 688 pages (and listening to 5 hours of audiobook!) and lastly #18 reading 2 books and 700 pages.
So my goals for this read-a-thon are to:
- Read 2000 pages
- Read an ARC
- Read a sequel
- Read a book I started but put down a while ago
I will be posting daily updates on here with my progress as well as my final tally at the end of the week. I am toying with maybe making Instagram stories about my progress but we’ll see how that goes. Anyways, if you’d like to join me the link is posted above as well as here.
