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.
Well it's all over bar the wrap-ups, but this was definitely one of the best Bout of Books that I've participated in.
Highlights of the week:
Participating in two Twitter chats and meeting loads of awesome bloggers.
Discovering loads of blogs through the daily link ups.
Finishing four books - no mean feat considering I'd been in a huge reading slump.
The Final Stats:
Books read: 4 - Matterhorn by Karl Marlantes, The Night Lives On by Walter Lord, OCD Love Story by Corey Ann Haydu & The Program (Program #1) by Suzanne Young
Total pages read: 1685
Next time: I'm going to try starting without a list of books, considering I started this BoB with 7 specific books and only finished one of them!
