Bout of Books 9.0

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, Jan 6th and runs through Sunday, Jan 12th 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 9.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team

I love the Bout of Books read-a-thon, it’s definitely a favorite of mine and probably the best there is for read-a-thons longer than 24hrs. There are always great prizes, fun challenges and of course, the amazing twitter chats! I’ll be visiting my grandma for the majority of the readathon, so I don’t know if I’ll get to as many books as I’d like, but I love it too much to pass completely, so I will try and fit as much reading time as my schedule (and politeness) allows. As always the challenge updates as well as updated stats will be below so look for that, and the books listed are only some of what I may or may not read, enjoy the read-a-thon!
