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 6th and runs through Sunday, January 12th 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 9.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team
Just like last time, I’ve decided to join in with Bout of Books even though I’ve got lots on! I’m not expecting to get much read, since I’ve got quite a lot planned with my other half and friends before they all head back to university next week. I’m hoping to still try and get at least a little done each day though, and a fair amount done Saturday night and Sunday.
My past Bout of Books progress:
5.0 (working part time): ~1500 pages/4 books
6.0 (around exam time): ~1200 pages/5 books
7.0 (around dissertation time): ~1200 pages/3 books
8.0 (complete free time!): ~1100 pages/4 books
