Bout of Books 5.0

Written By: Kellie - Aug• 13•12

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 13th and runs through Sunday, August 19th 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 5.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. -From the Bout of Books 5.0 team

This is my second Bout of Books, and alas… probably the last read-a-thon of the summer. I’m writing my goal post on the 3rd, right before I leave for the cottage which I’m sure will end up being an unofficial read-a-thon as well! Update: I made it through all six books I planned to read at the cottage so time to barrel through to Bout of Books 5.0
