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, January 6th and runs through Sunday, January 12th 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. For all Bout of Books 9.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team

The List:

Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen
Welcome, Caller, This is Chloe by Shelley Coriell
The Passing Bells by Phillip Rock
The Grass is Always Greener by Jen Calonita
Constable & Toop by Gareth P. Jones
A Deadly Grind by Victoria Hamilton
On the Trail of the Assassin’s by Jim Garrison

The Goals:

*Participate in one Twitter chat. – I’ve learned that I’m best to only attempt one Twitter chat during a Bout of Books read-a-thon. I get far too distracted otherwise.
*Visit 5 blogs daily to cheer on fellow Bout of Book-ers.
*Read for at least three hours each day.
*Complete four of my book goals.
*Actually finish filling out this post with ALL the updates. 😉 – Let’s see if I can do this TWO times. Lol.

      It’s such a small goal but I always feel so accomplished when I am able to complete it! Thank you! Good luck to you as well.

      Time zones would make it hard to participate in the Twitter chats. While they are great fun, they also can be a little overwhelming. I hope you enjoy Bout of Books!

      It’s taking me longer than I had anticipated to make it through this list. I’ve been busier this week than I had thought I would be.
