Lately I’ve been in several read-a-thons but it’s so fun to join and see how people are spending their week reading. Since I’m usually reading around four books every week it’s no big deal for me to sign up and try to read more for one week.
The Bout of Books is sort like a ritual since I participated in all of them, usually my goals are way to high and RL gets in the middle of things so the results are not the best, but for the next week I’ll try something that worked now.
I pledge to read 2000 pages, instead of setting a goal for books since I never keep, usually change the book and things just don’t work. But 2000 sounds like manageable, maybe I can even upgrade if I get there soon enough.
You can find more informations about my readings on twitter, I’ll update everyday with the hashtag #boutofbooks, or follow me on goodreads since my feed will tell you about the books I’m reading and the word count. More information about the read-a-thon is here.
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 13th and runs through Sunday, August 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.
