Here's the scoop on Bout of Books:
The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda Shofner and Kelly Rubidoux Apple. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01 am Monday, May 14th and runs through Sunday, May 20th 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 22 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team
My personal goal is to sit myself down and read as many books as I can, start-to-finish, within the prescribed week. I do hope to keep myself from wandering around various book sites online and finding more books I want to read, which takes up actual reading time. It's sort of a good habit / bad habit thing with me. And since book choice is open, I can slot in books for a couple of my challenges. Win!
Here's what I am planning to read:
- "Red Bang", Brandt Monroe
- "The Ladies of Missalonghi", Colleen McCullough
- "Excellent Women", Barbara Pym
- "The Unexpected Inheritance of Inspector Chopra", Vassem Khan
Wish me luck! Why not join us on this reading adventure!
