Bout of Books 8.0 ~ Sign-up & Goals

Bout of Books
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 19th and runs through Sunday, August 25th 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 8.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team

I was on the fence about signing up for Bout of Books this time around, but since a lot of my blogging friends (Abbi, Brooke, Crystal, Caitlyn) are participating, I just had to sign up too!

My Goal: 
Read/finish at least 5 books.

Books to read:
I really don't know what books I'll be reading during this read-a-thon, but I have a huge stack of TBR books that I'm hoping to make a dent in, so I'd like to read at least five of the following books next week:



I'll be posting updates regularly on Twitter and will do a wrap-up post once the read-a-thon ends.

Are you participating in this read-a-thon? If so, please leave a comment below with the link to your post - I'd love to stop by. :) Thanks for visiting my blog!

  4. I do not have a blog. I read and review books. I have a stack of books to read. Right now I am reading Sharlene MacLaren's series of books. Read Livvie and almost finished with Ellie's Haven. You get so blessed by her books.
