It's been a while since I've done one of these (the picture file on my computer still contains the banner for number 3), so here goes:
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 18th and runs through Sunday, August 24th 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 11 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team
I'm planning to read for as many of my waking hours as I can in the hope that I get more done than usual as its holiday time, and that I'll catch up on some of my book reading backlog.
Do join me during the week beginning the 18th August, and why not read along as well?!
