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 19th and runs through Sunday, August 25th 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 8.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team.
Earlier today I got back from a weekend in Amsterdam where I met up with a bunch of awesome book bloggers, and remembered that Bout of Books was still going on! And I'm happy to say, I managed to get another book read today too, huzzah!
Considering everything that was going on this week, I didn't do nearly as badly as I thought I would. Three books finished and another two underway!
