If you like to read A LOT and appreciate a challenge, join a read-a-thon. I didn’t know such a thing even existed until today, but it sounds pretty awesome, esp. because I already read all the time. The goal is to read as much as you possibly can within a week and update your reading progress as well as interact with other people who are also doing the challenge. There are some prizes available, but it’s really about the experience. Now the question is, which books should I read? My shelves are full and I’ve even got some library books hanging out so there’s no shortage of material.
The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda Shofner and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, August 21st and runs through Sunday, August 27th 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 20 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog.
