So today I thought I would announce my participation in my first read-a-thon. To be honest I don’t really know what to expect, but I thought I would try it out. From what I understand you can set your own goals, or just take it easy – there are also challenges and giveaways. Since this is my first ever read-a-thon and I don’t really know what I’m doing, I am planning on taking it easy and getting a whole load of reading done.
Sign ups end on May 10th – if you want to sign up click here.
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 9th and runs through Sunday, May 15th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 16 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog.
So far I’m thinking my TBR will consist of the last three books in the Narnia series by C. S. Lewis, as well as Amulet Vol 1 by Kazu Kibuishi, The Icebound Land by John Flanagan and The War of the Worlds by H. G. Wells. That is a tentative TBR (also maybe a little ambitious) though – we’ll see what books I actually get to. There may be a full TBR post coming up but I may just leave it at that. I am keeping it pretty chilled, as I don’t really know what to expect.
Are you participating? Do you have any tips for me?
See you next time.
