So i came across this read-a-thon the other day while i was on the internet and it couldn’t have come at a better time! I just had a triathlon this past weekend and my training schedule is mercifully blank this week (aka recovery week) – so i have time to read and just relax – whoo-hoo!
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, May 11 and runs through Sunday, May 17th 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 13 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog – From the Bout of Books team
This is the first time I’ve done Bout of Books, but I’m looking forward to it. I love that it runs for a week and is totally laid back – I’m usually horrible about getting lots of reading done, so I’m going to set myself a small goal. My goal for this read-a-thon is easy – 200 pages per day – it can be from any book that I am reading – print or kindle. For the purpose of this challenge, while I will count audiobooks listened to, I’m not going to add them into my goal page count (because I easily listen to 2-3 hours a day just in the car, plus another couple at work – if its quiet)…
Hope to see you guys there 😉
