Bout of Books 10

Bout of Books

I am going to participate again in this Bout of Books read-a-thon! It is my 5th time.  I really need to get caught up on some books and when I saw others participating in it I knew it was perfect for me.  It starts on the 12th of May!

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 12th and runs through Sunday, May 18th 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 10 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog.

Don't forget to use the #boutofbooks hashtag when updating on Twitter and follow boutofbooks.
I will be updating my progress here on my webpage and on my my twitter page. 
I will be doing a master post as the read-a-thon gets closer with all the books I plan to read and with all the challenges I do!  Can't wait to get started!


  1. Woah, fifth time?! Props for loyalty. ;) I can't wait to get started either. I'm super excited. Good luck with your reading!

  2. LOL! Ok I am obsessed maybe??? I did apply to be a Bout of Book expert this time around so we'll see if I get approved.

    Have fun with Bout of Books next month! I hope you are selected as a Bout of Books Expert. That would be awesome. I'm not going to be participating in this event as my hubby and I will be moving in less than four weeks. Lots of stuff to do before we move. My blogging will probably slow down quite a bit too.

  4. Moving is always crazy... I am sure that blogging will be put the side. I don't want o move again but I think the only thing good about it is that I can go through my stuff and get rid of a lot of old stuff.

    I too hope I get picked as expert. I usually stop by all the blogs anyways so I thought might as well be an expert too! LOL!

  5. I think I might just have to participate in this one with you. I didn't get as much reading done as I wanted to during Deweys. And I have been thinking I need a 'sick' day with no hubby, munchkin or work and this may just be the excuse I need ;)

  6. I didn't get as much reading as I wanted during Dewey either. 24 hours is a little tough for me. But a whole week is wonderful. I love Bout of Books!

  7. Good luck! I'm doing the Clean Sweep ARC Challenge over at The Caffeinated Book Reviewer all month, or I would join in too. But I find it's hard to keep track of too many challenges at once!

  8. I am hosting that event with her. You could combine the two. ;)

  9. Oh bother, I knew that you were co-hosting! (embarrassed facepalm) Sorry! I'll think about doing both, but I'm working on two freelance projects back to back this month, and they're pretty time-consuming, so I'm probably better off sticking to one challenge at a time. (And of course, there are the year-long challenges I'm doing, too...)

  10. I'm so excited to be joining this read-a-thon, I always only find out about it too later the other times but not now, and it couldn't have come in a more perfect time!
