Event: Bout of Books 13


Bout of Books
May is a month of finishing. I, for example, am finishing quite a few things this month, from school to dance classes to a recorder class I'm teaching. But my TBR pile is nowhere near being finished. In fact, due to our local book sale running every weekend in May, my TBR pile has gone from fifty-one books (already a lot) to one hundred and six. Ouch. Truthfully though, I love having all those books waiting for me to pick up. And in order to read as many as possible, I'm participating in Bout of Books 13! Here's the official info:


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, May 11th and runs through Sunday, May 17th 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 13 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team

This is a great way to get a lot of books done in a week, while also being able to participate in some fun challenges. I will be updating this post each day in order to share my reading progress. I will also post a daily video on my YouTube channel, where I will complete the daily challenge. So be sure to check back here daily for my progress! On top of these main things, I will be posting regularly on my other social media sites (links will be listed at the bottom of this post).

I'm not sure exactly how many books I will be able to finish during this read-a-thon as I also have to study for tests and do some writing assignments throughout the week on top of my regular schoolwork, so I'm not setting a goal as to how many books to finish. Mostly I just want to read a lot and have fun! I will also be counting any reading I do for school. It is reading, so I don't see why not.
