Bout of Books 8.0 was my first (and, so far, only) read-a-thon that I’d ever participated. So now that it’s time for Bout of Books 9.0, I’m really excited about doing it again!
Here’s the information:
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
For this time around, my goal is going to be to read 2,200 pages. I remember last time I only came up with a number of books that I wanted to read, but I didn’t like doing it that way. I think that it’s a lot more accurate to use a page count anyway.
I’m not really sure what books I’m going to be reading during that week yet. I think I’ll probably want to use it to catch up on some review copies, but also a few personal ones as well, which will come from my January 2014 TBR that I’ll post at the end of the month.
