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, January 5th and runs through Sunday, January 11th 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 12 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team
I don't think I've ever tallied how many books I read during a week before, so this will be fun. I'll be going for 7 books, like 'a book a day keeps the boredom away' or something like that. I'll either be reading ARCs for reviews (I've got 3 scheduled in that time frame, and 9 others during the rest of January and early February, but I've read a couple of them already) or from my extensive, almost-crush weight TBR pile and list. Seriously, I keep wondering when my Kindle app will say, "Does not compute."
If you are a reader, click the button at the top and join in! If you don't read, but know someone who does, share this post with them! (Heck if you do read, share it anyway? I'd be ever so grateful!)
I seriously like this early-in-the-new-year readathon. Last year (or is that this year, since it's still 2014), I got a wonderful jump start on my reading year from participating.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, y'all! :O)
