Bout of Books 17

Bout of Books

Hi everyone! If you’re not following me on Twitter (you should, btw), then you wouldn’t know I signed up for Bout of Books 17! You can find more info here.

If you don’t know, here’s what it’s about:

You were going to read that week anyway, right?  Read with us.

The Bout of Books Read-a-Thon was created by Amanda @ On a Book Bender on a complete whim in August 2011*. It took on a life of its own and was such a hit that Amanda decided to do it again and turn it into a somewhat regular occurrence.

  • Bout of Books is a week long read-a-thon, usually from 12:01am on a Monday through 11:59pm on a Sunday in whatever time zone you are in.
  • It is low pressure, meaning participants are only asked to push themselves to read more than they normally would during any given week. There is no competition between readers.
  • How much time a reader wants, and can commit, to read, tweet, or network with fellow bloggers is left to individual preference. All challenges and giveaways are optional.
  • Networking with fellow bloggers is actively encouraged, though never required.
  • Use Twitter to post updates throughout the read-a-thon. Everyone will be tweeting with the #boutofbooks hashtag.

So that’s basically the jist. Read as much as you usually do, but read a little more. That’s it!

My goal is to read 2 books in a week! My usual is 1 book a week.

This post will be my updates post for the week.
