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
I wasn’t sure if I was going to participate in this read-a-thon. On one hand it will be over one week instead of one day. The other hand it is during a week that I don’t have a ton of time. My rationale is that I should just do it. It is a low pressure read-a-thon. I mean all I have to do is read more than I normally do. I average one book a week. Can I read more than one book a week? Sure. That just means I need to make an effort not to spend so much time on the internet, watching tv, or on the phone. I can do this. So, I am in.
Goal: Read 2-3 books over the course of the week.
Ways to Accomplish Goal:
Turn off tv, internet, and stop wasting time.
