Bout of Books 13

20130514-081419.jpgFrom one readathon to the next! Bout of Books 13 is just around the corner! It’s less pressure than Dewey’s, going all week long. I’ve got so many books out from the library and I haven’t finished any of them! This is definitely gonna help me out. I was an expert in the last one and will probably look to do the same this time. I’m signing up tonight. Here are some of the deets:

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. – From the Bout of Books team

Time Devoted to Reading

I’m bound to be busy. I haven’t even looked at my calendar. I’m sure I will devote at least 2 hours to read every day and lots of time cheering everyone on! It’s my favourite part. Twitter just blows up!

My Goals

I don’t have anything specific yet… Some ideas I’m toying with: 50 pages a day, upload a video with my progress daily, hold a bookish giveaway…

Books to Read

oh gosh, ask me again next week. I have no idea today.

Bout of Books
Yep, I’m still on holiday in Los Angeles but there is one week to go, so I’m signing up! Not sure if I was required as an expert but I put my hand up to cheer & read wherever & whenever I can. Gratefully there is no official goal post this year. Due to #boutofbooks starting the day after I get home & being at work for the Readathon week, this takes away the pressure. I expect to be super jet lagged and sleeping at my desk on Monday morning. I will definitely be tweeting throughout the week & cheering along fellow readers like nobody’s business, so make sure to come chat with me on Twitter. If this is your first time hearing about Bout of Books, here is the official blurb:
