Bout of Books 8.0 starts up in just a week! August 19-25 will see me try and beat my previous Bout of Books goals and read 4 books this time. I usually manage 3 (better than my normal 1 or 2 a week) but I’d really like to hit 4. Which will be tough, since one of my best friends from high school is getting married on the 24th and I’m in the wedding. Guess I’ll just have to get everything read before I leave on the 23rd. Maybe an audiobook is in my future? My pile of choices is below.
Anyway! This is my official sign up for Bout of Books 8.0, and for those of you who don’t know, here’s a bit of what Bout of Books is all about, straight from the wonderful team behind it:
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
