Bout of Books? I’m in.

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

This will be my very first Bout of Books. Yay me! I was wooed by the words LOW-PRESSURE. 
Have you ever participated? Will you be this time around?

  1. I didn't know it but I think I will participate because I recently try another readathon and it was a failure because I couldn't read at all :((So I have to catch up!


  2. I did this in May, and it was a lot of fun. This time around it falls on an awkward week for me… my husband's 30th birthday is that Tuesday and we might be having out of town guests that weekend. Oh well. Guess this is where that \”low-pressure\” thing comes in.


  3. I've participated in the last couple Bout(s?) of Books but the timing on this one is bad for me—just returning from a road trip and it's the first week of the semester (a busy time at work for me). Bummer! Hopefully I can join again for the fall/winter bouts.


  4. You know, I think I'm going to do it! I was leaning towards not, since I think I already read as much each week as I can and still be a responsible grad student. However, seeing all these bloggers I know hopping on board has reminded me that I'll definitely enjoy the blogger interactions even if I'm not able to beat my typical amount of reading 🙂


  5. I did the last one, so this will be my second. It's falling on teachers' first week of school for me, but I plan on working my butt of at school and relaxing at home! Besides, the Twitter chats are full of great connections! Make sure you do the Twitter chats!


  6. Very tempted. I'm effectively readathoning at the moment as I have lots of books to get through, but it's just not the same when you're by yourself. I like the week-long time, too, less pressure maybe leading to more books read.


  7. Yes! I had so much bookish and nerdy fun last time I can't so no to joining in again. Plus with all the extra reading time I have with the whole living alone thing, I should be able to devour a few books. I hope you have fun with it!
