Starting of this month is the return of Bout of Books. Bout of Books 13 kicks of on Monday the 11th and finishes on Sunday the 17th of May. In this time period the main aim of the game is to read as much as possible. It’s a great motivation booster and a read-a-thon I enjoy taking part in as it comes round a couple of times throughout the year.
Below is the official blurb about Bout of Books #13 :
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.

This is a read-a-thon that you can sign up to and link your own site to as well. Its encouraged to post throughout the week and update any followers on your reading progress. There are challenges planned for everyday from photo and colour challenges to Haikus so definitely check them out.
I am really looking forward to this read-a-thon this week and it’s came at the perfect time for me as I am getting back into the swing of reading and blogging. I definitely need this boost of motivation because I am falling behind on my reading challenge for this year and I definitely don’t want to be picking up the pieces at the end of the year. I have challenged myself to read 80 books this year and so far I have read 14 which isn’t very good when next month will mark the halfway point of 2015.
If anyone knows of other read-a-thons coming up or if you plan on taking part in Bout of Books #13 why not leave a comment below.
Good Luck and Happy Reading!
