Bout of Books

The Official Blurb:

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.

      I had read The Eye of the World in high school and really enjoyed it! I think that I absorbed more of it this time around. I can’t wait to continue with the series. Jordan is very detail oriented but doesn’t over do it in my opinion. It is definitely epic fantasy. 🙂
