I have never participated in a Bout of Books read-a-thon before so this should be fun... I honestly wasn't even thinking about participating in Bout of Books 11 until Kyra (Blog of a Bookaholic) sent me a tweet asking if I was participating. So, I made a split second decision and here I am writing my sign up post.
This is basically what Bout of Books entails:
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.
