Bout of Books 20

Today marks the start of the twentieth Bout of Books.  I decided I wanted to take part a while ago, but somehow I never actually got round to signing up. I don’t think this will be a particularly brilliant Bout of Books for me in terms of amount of reading I’ll get done, but as Amanda and Kelly often point out Bout of Books is not about the amount you read but the fun you have. After the last several months I definitely need some fun! Bout of Books 20 came at the perfect time.

If you’re new to Bout of Books then here you go:

The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda Shofner and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, August 21st and runs through Sunday, August 27th 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 20 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team

As I did with Bout of Books 19, I’ve decided to combine my sign up post with my progress post – so don’t forget to check back here to see my progress as the week progresses.

The books I intend to read during Bout of Books 20 (+ a snack and a drink).

For Bout of Books 20 my goals are simple. I want to read as much as I can. I want to complete at least one challenge, and I want to take part in a Twitter chat if possible.

Good luck and happy reading to everyone else taking part.

My Progress…

Bout of Books 20 Wrap-up

I’m sitting here writing this late on the 10th of September. You could say Bout of Books 20 was a bit of a disaster for me in terms of page count, and that is totally true. I read nowhere near the amount I wanted to, nor did I get any motivation to read. I did manage to take part in the Twitter chat on the Sunday, and I did complete one challenge – I also read something, which is a LOT better than nothing. August was not a good month for me, here’s hoping that September will be better.
