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 teamIt is definitely low-pressure and meant to be a week to encourage more reading. You can set yourself some goals if you want. Because it does not start for over a week, I will not have my goals list and tbr list until next week sometime. I am most definitely signing up. I will be busy with some final school work, so I don't know if I will accomplish as much reading as I have in the past, but I will definitely try my best. The challenges are also super fun and the twitter chats that happen. It is a great way to get to know other people in the booktube/bookblog community. :)
