The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organised by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, August 22nd and runs through Sunday, August 28th 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 17 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team
Ladies and gents, boys and girls, I am participating in Bout of Books 17!
Over the past couple of days there has been such an overwhelming amount of videos and posts online about this week long read-a-thon that I couldn’t help getting sucked in and participating myself.
I haven’t participated in Bout of Books for years. Literally years. I remember definitely participating in Bout of Books in 2013 (round 6 or 7) but I don’t think I’ve even considered partaking since then. However I’m relatively free this week so I thought it was the perfect opportunity to try and accomplish a few small reading goals and share that with you guys!
So in saying that, I am participating in Bout of Books round 17 and I’d love to hear if you are down below!
- finish one of my current reads
- start and finish another book
- review two books
- read one graphic novel or comic
- write a small update on this blog every day or two
- attempt to use my instagram @nicareads to document the progress
That’s it. These are my six goals for the read-a-thon. I know that if i choose a TBR ahead of time or commit to reading a certain amount of page numbers I won’t follow through. I am hoping that Gone Girl is one of the books I decide to pick up and I’m pretty keen for a reread so who knows what I’ll be in the mood before. Wish me luck and click the link above if you want to join in too. It’s gonna be a ball! ❁
