So the time has come again my friends and how exciting is this?!
It is the Bout of Books 11 Read-a-Thon and what could be better than having an excuse to read even more than you already do with your free time. Basically all you have got to do is Read, Read, Read, Read and Read a bit more.
Below is the blurb all about the Read-A-Thon, when it starts, when it ends and what is involved not to mention all the cool giveaway and competitions that run during that week.
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 18th and runs through Sunday, August 24th 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 11 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team.
For me this will be the second Read-A-Thon I have ever participated in but nothing sound more fun than being able to read along with the rest of the book community and challenge yourself into reading a little more than you planned to.
Closer to the time I will be uploading a post about the different books I am hoping to read during the Read-A-Thon so keep checking back if you want to see my list. Until then if you want to recommend any books please leave a comment, I am always welcoming recommendations for some new books or genres.
If you want to join in on the Read-A-Thon all you need to do is pick up a book or if you have a book blog or twitter or any other means of social networking just mention Bout of Books and start reading.
I hope you all join in and have a successful week of reading!
