I participated in Bout of Books last year for their 9th run, so exactly a year ago. Once again, I'm on winter break and Bout of Books is conveniently happening just before I head back to school -- perfect timing!
For those of you who haven't heard about Bout of Books before, here's a little blurb straight from their website explaining what exactly Bout of Books is all about:
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, January 6th and runs through Sunday, January 12th 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 9.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team
I'll probably post a reading list of books I want to read during the event on Sunday once I get a better idea of where I am book-wise in my current TBR pile. If you haven't participated before, I definitely think you should! Winter is the perfect time to curl up with a blanket and a good book and read-a-thons are always a blast. Let me know down below if you plan on participating and we can keep each other motivated!
