Bout of Books Read-a-Thon 10.0!

Bout of Books
Yahoo! Remember that thing I said in my new years resolutions post back in December about wanting to participate in a readathon of some sort? The time is now! For the past couple of years, I've watched the Bout of Books Read-a-Thon pass me by, but not this year. After seeing many posts about it, I've officially decided to sign up for the first time! If you are unfamiliar with what this read-a-thon is about, take it from them:
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, May 12th and runs through Sunday, May 18th 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 10 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team
I've heard a lot of awesome things about this big week of reading, so I'm excited to join in on the fun. Tomorrow, I'll be posting about some of my goals for this read-a-thon so say tuned for that.

Are you participating this year? Any advice for a newbie?


  1. I'm very excited for my first Bout of Books! I just hope to get through 2 books. :) Have fun!

  2. YAY for your first readathon! Here's my advice for a newbie.
    1. HAVE FUN! Don't put pressure on yourself, just read and chat and enjoy the community of readers that Bout of Books brings together!
    2. Try different types of books to get more reading in--audiobooks, graphic novels, etc. They are a GREAT way to feel like you are accomplishing more, even if you are busy!
    3. FUN FUN FUN! that's what it's all about!

    #ReadStrong! Have a good week! =)
