Bout of Books is a biannual read-a-thon that starts next week; it encourages participants to read more than their usual. I'm really excited to be doing a read-a-thon again, because I haven't done one since I was a kid. My local library always held events during the summer and the kids who read the most books got prizes. Ah, those were the days.
For those of you who are interested in joining the read-a-thon, here's Bout of Books' official description:
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
Bring on the books!
