Bout of Books 10 Read-a-thon Sign-up and Goals

Bout of Books

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 12th and runs through Sunday, May 18th 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 10 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team

One day I'll write a sign-up post before the eve of an event beginning. Today is not that day.

Well, Bout of Books seems to have swung around again awfully quickly, but it's not like that's a bad thing. Far from it, I can't wait to get started. My reading has tapered off a little lately due to a heavy workload and my ambition to keep up-to-date with reviews has fallen by the wayside as well. Still, no matter! My goal is to rectify this during the read-a-thon.

More specifically, over seven days I hope to:

  • Read four books
  • Write five reviews
  • Comment on five new-to-me blogs per day
Here's what I may (or may not) be reading from:

I am, of course, still working throughout this week, in my odd job with odd hours and odd time requirements so it remains to be seen how much reading I'll actually get done. Maybe I'll take annual leave for the next read-a-thon... regardless, I'll do my best!

Happy read-a-thoning everybody!


  1. HELLO! I back from Buckinghamshire and ready to start reading, finally, and I MIGHT read Fangirl and I'm very excited because I SAW SO MANY AWESOME ANIMALS TODAY and my grandma cried because we were going to somewhere she never thought she'd actually get to go and we'd kept it a surprise and IT WAS SUCH A NICE DAY. *runs off to fetch book quick* *also take shoes off and maybe unpack*

    1. *coughs* I'm back... not I back... I have apparently forgotten how to write English.

    2. Aww Ellie, that sounds so lovely. I'm happy you had such a great day. That sounds really insincere, but I'm actually sat here all smiley and doe-eyed!

      I was considering Fangirl, but I think anything that light-hearted would seem odd immediately after reading Look Who's Back.

  2. Read Ocean?? Pleeeeease? Then we can talk about it and also its just so gooooooood!!
