Wow! This Bout-of-Books marks exactly 5 years since the very first Bout-of-Books that was started by that infamous tweet. And since I’ve been there from the beginning, it marks my 17th Bout-of-Books as well. I still get excited when I get ready to announce to everyone my intention to join in on the fun. 😉
During the week of August 22-28, 2016 it’s officially time to get your read on! If you’ve never participated in Bout-of-Books, you can find out everything you need to know about this ‘no-pressure’ read-a-thon here. The only other thing you need to know is get ready to have some fun! You can read as much or as little as you want while you meet lots of cool bloggers/readers and take part in challenges, chat away (or just try to keep up) with a couple of twitter chats. Of course there’s nothing wrong with just setting the week aside to just read while knowing that a bunch of other people are doing the same. Below is the official Bout-of-Books blurb:
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 22nd and runs through Sunday, August 28th 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 17 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team
Just remember, the most important thing is to have FUN!
