Bout of Books read-a-thon

This previous april was the most erratic month that I had in a really long time, in the reading departament. With college picking up I had very little time to read and every time I picked up a book I was in a mood for a diferent thing. The result: only one book read and a gazillion others started and now fighting for my atention.

So, when I heard of the read-a-thon I immediatly thought: Now is the time!


Bout of Books


So... what's the read-a-thon?


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 13th and runs through Sunday, May 19th 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 7.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team



My Goals:


I will not set a fixed time or days that I will be reading, but I will clear every little space in my agenda and hope for the best.
