Bout of Books 7.0 Sign Ups

Bout of Books

It's that time again - Bout of Books read-a-thon!  

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 13th and runs through Sunday, May 19th 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 7.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team.

If you haven't joined Bout of Books before, this is the perfect opportunity to jump right in!  Meet other bloggers, read mountains (ahem, ok, small hills) of books and just have insane amounts of fun!  Sound good?  Go and sign up here!

  2. I'm doing this one too! Saw a button on someone's blog and thought it sounded fun. Haven't done week long read-a-thons before. I average about two books a week so I am going to try to double that to 4.

    1. It's so much fun - I've met amazing bloggers doing it, and I always feel really motivated to read more :)

  3. I have never done it, but always want to! I am home with the kiddo all day, so it's hard to really do too much until she naps, and then when she goes to bed, but maybe I will try. The worst that can happen is I don't make my goal right? Thanks for sharing.

    1. You should totally join, Amy! I have to read around work so I don't usually read piles, but it's a great way to interact with other bloggers too.

  6. I just participated in my first ever readathon over the weekend and it was loads of fun! I'm going to check out what this one is all about and maybe join. I like that it's described as low pressure and doesn't require me to be deprived of sleep (although I did get a great sense of accomplishment for staying up all day and night).

    1. I can't do the all-nighters, so you are more hardcore than me! BoB is very laid back, it's more about fun and interaction than competition :)

  8. I had fun doing this last year, and with my Clean Sweep ARC challenge this may help me add a few books! Thanks for sharing and good luck!

  9. I'm going to sign up and I'm determined to participate...I seem to always sign up for these things and have everything set to read and all of a sudden I end up not wanting to read anything at all.

  10. I signed up, too! I love Bout of Books! It was the first Readathon I've ever participated in and I love the spirit that comes from it! I feel like it's a whole community that grows together each time a new BoB rolls around :D
