Yes. This is happening.
I have only ever participated in one read-a-thon (Dewey’s 24-hour read-a-thon) and my experience was okay. Nothing I would do again. But. Bout of Books turns it up to 11 and declares an entire week a read-a-thon. I do have a job and am completely useless without my 8 hours of sleep, but next week, I have three short work days plus the weekend. Since I was ill all of last week I didn’t get much reading done (couch, TV, blanket, tea, sleep – not good for reading goals). So I have decided to join in and see how it goes.
For those who don’t know what the hell I’m talking about, here’s what this is:
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, May 13th and runs through Sunday, May 19th 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 7.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team
