Okay. I am so stoked to get this party started. Next week is the Bout of Books Readathon (August 22 to 28th). I am not sure how I am going to do since I will be balancing multiple jobs next week, but I would like to get a least a few books read.
If you want to sign up, it is easy. Just go to their site http://boutofbooks.blogspot.com/, and fill out a form on the bottom. You will also need to make a post on either your blog, twitter, or some other social media source to tell the world that you are participating. It is super simple. There are also some great contest for you to participate in along the way.
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 22nd and runs through Sunday, August 28th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 17 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team
So here are the books that I am planning on reading for Bout of Books
- Saga Vol. 4
- Saga Vol. 5
- The Vampire Christopher
- Blood Soaked Promises
- P.S. I Like You
- Ember in the Ashes
I feel as though that is a bit ambitious. However, I picked many quick short books. I also picked an audiobook so that I can maximize the time that I spent reading. I have about 16 hours to read from Monday to Saturday. I have most of the day Sunday to read, as you can see with the schedule below.
My plans are to read the graphic novels on Monday and Tuesday. Both of those library books are due on Wednesday. After that, it is more along the lines of what I feel like reading, but I feel as though I would get more done if I focus on the short stories on Wednesday and Thursday ( The Vampire Christopher and Blood Soaked Promises). Ember in the Ashes is my audio book that I will listen to while I am getting ready and traveling to work. I am hoping that I will be able to finish this 15.5-hour book within this week. I am planning on reading P.S. I Like You on both Friday and Saturday. Sunday will be my catch up day if I fall behind.
That is my TBR and plans for Bout-of-Books 17. What are your plans? Are you planning on participating in Bout-of-Books 17? There is still time to sign up if you want to participate. It is a lot of fun and I am looking forward to my week of craziness.
I will talk to you soon. Happy reading!
