Bout of Books 17.0

Time to get our read on with Bout of Books … 17.0! *insert wild cheering here* And, you guessed it, I will be participating. Go forth and sign up on the Bout of Books blog! You won’t regret it. There’s currently over 350 of us signed up!!

JOIN US! No, really. Join us. It’s totally fun. WITH BOOKS! WHEEEEE!

I will be posting my updates every day here, and you can follow me on social media too. I’m also taking part in a month long challenge for August called Mega Month Challenge, and that post will also contain my updates all week long!!

Are you participating??! Let me know, comment below!!

  • Bout of Books is a week-long read-a-thon, from 12:01am on Monday 8/22/16 through 11:59pm on Sunday 8/28/16 in whatever time zone you are in.
  • It is low pressure, meaning participants are only asked to push themselves to read more than they normally would during any given week. There is no competition between readers.
  • How much time a reader wants, and can commit, to read, tweet, or network with fellow bloggers is left to individual preference. These challenges and giveaways are SUPER FUN! But optional.
  • Networking with fellow bloggers is actively encouraged, though never required.
  • Use Twitter to post updates throughout the read-a-thon. Everyone will be tweeting with the #boutofbooks hashtag. Chats are scheduled for Monday 8/22/16 9-10PM EST and Sunday 8/28/16 11-12PM EST using the hashtag.

Upcoming Read-a-Thons
Bout of Books 18 – 1/2/2017 — 1/8/2017
Bout of Books 19 – 5/8/2017 — 5/14/2017

Time Devoted to Reading
I will be dedicating the entire week to reading. As usual, I’m also working full time and try to maintain a social life. I have Girls Night In on Tuesday and Friday so I know I won’t be able to read much those days.

My Goals

  • Read. Have fun! Don’t stress.
  • Update this post once a day.
  • Be active in the Twitter chats.
  • Read THREE books.
