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, 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.

It’s time for another Bout of Books, and I’ve decided to sign-up again. I want to use this opportunity to both kick-start myself back into reading & I want to use the opportunity to finish some books I’ve had lying around the house for a while. I really like the fact that this read-a-thon is no pressure. With that in mind, I don’t plan to do daily vlogs this time around. If you want to keep track of how I’m doing I’ll post an updates post on Monday where you can keep track, or you can follow me on Instagram or Twitter. Depending on how things go I may also post a vlog round-up of how Bout of Books 17 went for me once everything’s done.
As far as goals go for this read-a-thon they’re going to be real low-key, as I don’t want to pile the pressure on myself. Basically I want to read – and finish – the three books in the photo below, and anything on top of that will be gravy. Oh, and I definitely want to try for one of the Twitter chats as they’re super fun and I highly recommend them if you’re taking part and can make them – they are chaotic fun at its best!
Please let me know in the comments below if you’re taking part, & good luck and I hope you have fun.
