I wasn’t going to sign up, but peer pressure has got the better of me, and I have a ton of books that need reading, so here I go. I’m in and I’m committed. In case you’re not familiar with Bout of Books:
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
My plan is simple, I’m going to read, and read a lot.
- Finish The Story Hour by Thrity Umrigar
- Read The Paying Guests by Sarah Waters if I can get my hands on a copy before I see her on Aug 25.
- Read and make notes on Skim and This One Summer by Mariko and Jillian Tamaki before recording my first ever podcast appearance on WriteReads.
- That can’t seriously be it, can it? Well, I have four blog posts that need writing, so does that count?
Have fun and good luck to all.
Monday: finished reading The Story Hour. (forgot to count pages)
Tuesday: read Skim. Started Expo 58 by Jonathan Coe.
