I’m joining #boutofbooks! This is the 23rd edition of the popular read-a-thon and my second one. We had a lot of fun last time - why not join us?
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 12:01am Monday, August 20th and runs through Sunday, August 26th 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 23 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team
My goal will be to read as many books as I can during the week of the readathon. Because I'm packing up to move in a few weeks, I'll continue my Short Reads Short Reviews personal challenge. This lets me complete a book without spreading it out over too many days and losing track of the story.
Here's what I am planning to read:
- "The Little Prince", Antoine de Saint Exupéry
- "Every Frenchman Has One", Olivia de Havilland
- "Dubliners", James Joyce
- "The Romance of Tristan & Iseult", Joseph Bédier
- "The Book of Khartoum", Raph Cormack & Max Shmookler, editors
Let the reading commence!
