Bout of Books 12

2015, Bout-of-Books

HELLO! Bout of Books week is here! That means I’m going to try read, listen to an audiobook maybe, connect with other Bout-of-Bookers, and maybe even participate in some challenges!

 

Bout of Books 12What is Bout of Books?

The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized byAmanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, January 5th and runs through Sunday, January 11th 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 12 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team

Be sure to also follow me on Twitter and Goodreads for live updates! (I know, soooo exciting. ) And FOR SURE follow the read-a-thon hashtag (#boutofbooks) to see everyone’s updates!

Goals

  • Read as much as possible – I don’t have a set number of books though, so I’ll just read whenever I can.
  • Have fun connecting – I’ll be following the hashtag on Twitter for this one.
  • Participate in some challenges – Just whenever possible.

This post will hold all updates and any challenges I end up participating in will be here too, so be sure to visit throughout the week!

    I’m trying to decide what book to listen to at work. It is so hard! Good luck Jess. With ACOTAR, you will not be able to put it down. ARGH, so so good! :-)

    Yay! I hope you enjoyed Shadow & Bone! ACOTAR! It’s soooooo amazing! I really hope you enjoy it! If you do, you’ll find it extremely hard to put down! :)
    Good luck!

    Glad you’re making progress! I LOVED Shadow and Bone. The Darkling? I do not care if he’s the bad guy!!! :) Haven’t gotten a chance to read ACOTAR yet (ugh!!!) but I hope you love it! I’ve seen nothing but GREAT things about it!
