Bout of Books 11

Remember back in May when I participated in Bout of Books and read nine books in a week? Yeah, Bout of Books is happening again in a couple of weeks, and I figured that even though I'm going to be spending a ton of time on Youtube this month with VEDA, I'd join in again!

I'm fairly certain that my goals are going to be a lot more low key this time around, because I pretty much burnt myself out last time and only read about 200 pages in the week that followed - over 3,000 pages in a week was clearly too many pages. But I'm still going to join in the fun!

Anyway, here's the official blurb:

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, August 18th and runs through Sunday, August 24th 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 11 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team

Will you be joining Bout of Books? If so, head here to sign up!

    Wow! Nine books is fabulous but I guess not so much, if you feel exhausted after finishing. I'm going to join to try to get some of my current reads cleaned up. Perhaps I can get nine books finished. I, at least, need to try something before fall begins and the busyness returns.

    Happy reading! :-)

  2. Phewf, 9 books?! That is extremely impressive though. I read 7 books a week for 2 weeks straight in July and....ungh. No more books. I'm taking a break right now. I love watching people do challenges. I sit back and just watch them work and, you know, eat popcorn and do nothing. ONE DAY though, I will be brave and join a challenge. One day....

  3. I'm trying to finish Anna Karenina before Bout of Books starts so that I can start with a clean slate. I've got like 320 pages to go... O.o

  4. Bout of Books is a pretty good one because you set your own goals. So you can go as hardcore or as low key as you want. Which is great this time around seeing as I'll be watching like 14 hours of Youtube a day for VEDA!


Leave me a comment and I'll love you forever (except for spambots...)
