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.
I am excited about this challenge for myself. My daughter Kristi of Kritters Ramblings and I are going to encourage each other to read more then our usual. I am a slower paced reader, so this challenge is really fun for me. My challenge is going to be to read more hours of each day – not count the pages. That will help me to enjoy my book and still read more!
