Bout of Books 13 starts in.. 1 hour?!?

Hey everyone,

I just wanted to write a quick post about the exciting read-a-thon that is coming up!  For those of you that were unaware, I am going to be participating in my first ever READ-A-THON!  And it is going to start in an hour (12:00 am CT) 🙂

For those of you that want in on the fun, it is NOT TOO LATE TO START!  No matter what time zone you are in, Bout of Books 13 starts this Monday morning at 12 am and ends the following Sunday night at 11:59 pm.  Even if you have missed a few hours or even a day, you can participate.  All that you need to do is grab a book and read as much as you can for a whole entire week.  That’s it!  Easy peasy 🙂

BoB13-200x200The 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 11th 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

As I said before, I am new to this along with a bunch of other book lovers.  I am excited to see how much I can read in a whole week devoted to just that.  What makes it even better is that it takes place during the first week of summer vacation for me, so TBR pile here I come!

My Goals : I would like to see myself read about 4 books in the week.  I want this to be a fun experience for me, so this goal is open-ended.  I won’t force myself to reach 4 books if I won’t have free time for them.  It is what I liked about this reading challenge: low-pressure.

I hope y’all join in on the fun!  Let me know in the comments whether you participating, and you can feel free to leave a link to your blog/channel on your updates 🙂  What books are you planning on reading?  Any favorites?

Throughout the week, I will be posting updates each day about the books and page counts that I have achieved so far.  So stay tuned!

1 hour and counting……………
