Bout of Books Read-a-Thon 11

I cannot believe it's already time for another Bout of Books Read-a-Thon! I think this is my third time participating and I can't stress enough how it keeps me on track with my reading! What is the Bout of Books Read-a-thon, you ask?

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.

Bout of Books

For this round, with a wedding to plan and a new house we're still chipping away at setting up, I'm going to go easy on myself. But I'm going to focus on holding myself accountable for my TBR Pile Challenge List. My goal is to read three books, two of which come from the challenge. Honestly, I think this might be the toughest read-a-thon yet because I'm such an emotional reader. I completely choose my books based on how I feel, so this TBR Pile List is completely unappealing to me. But I'm going to do it! I haven't failed a Bout of Books yet and I don't plan on it!! :)

If you're interested in participating, head on over to Boutofbooks.org and get in on the fun! 


  1. Hi,

    I came across your blog from the bout of books sign up page. I'm participating too and noticed that your challenge is the same as mine - to read three books from my TBR pile (my post is here http://thenovelprojectchronicles.com/?p=44 ).

    I really recommend the Casual Vacancy which I just finished reading and have been raving about to everyone I meet.

    Good Luck.

  2. Good luck with your goals - hope you manage to finish all three books :) I love your blog design, by the way.

    Happy reading!
    Here's what I'll be reading next week

  3. I am also an emotional reader so usually I never stick to my TBR piles. I hope you reach your goals for this read-a-thon. Happy reading! Here are my Goals

  4. I have the same. I made a summer reading list at the beginning of the summer with books of my shelves and then at times I thought: why, did I pick these?? Most have turned out to be great reads though! Good luck with your goals, Danielle!
