(from Bout of Books website)
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 7th and runs through Sunday, January 13th 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 6.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. -From the Bout of Books 6.0 team
I love these Bout of Books readathons because they are low pressure, and I can participate as much as I have time for. It's also a great opportunity to network with other bloggers, discover new blogs and just generally chat about books! I did end up winning a book in the last Bout of Books week as well.
Here are my goals for the week, and I will update my progress here as well.
- To finish reading Deadly Hemlock by Kathleen Peacock
- To read Undeadly by Michele Vail
- To start reading Sacrifice by Cayla Kluver, and to be at least 50% through it by the end of the readathon.
- To listen to The Power of Nine on audiobook.
I also want to visit and comment on a minimum of 3 blogs per day, and visit at least 7 Bout of Books wrap-up posts.
My goals are fairly low because I'm working all week, but I think this is enough to be a challenge for me but is also a realistic goal. Who else is participating in this challenge? Good luck!
