Bout of Books

The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda Shofner and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, January 8th and runs through Sunday, January 14th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 21 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team


I love Bout of Books and I pretty much always take part, so this is no exception. I’ve actually just finished my current read last night so I’m not sure what I’ll be starting with this week! I’ve just borrowed a variety of books from the library though so I have plenty to choose from.  Last Bout of Books I smashed my target and hit 2000+ pages, but I’m working 6 of 7 days this week, so I’m setting my goal at 1000 pages.


  • Read 1000 pages
  • Finish 2 books
