Bout of Books 13 Sign-up!

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 11th and runs through Sunday, May 17th 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 13 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team.


From May 11-17 I am going to be participating in my first ever Bout of Books Read-a-thon! I have seen several other bloggers participating in past events and decided to learn more about it. I wasn't able to participate in the Dewey Read-a-Thon this past weekend, so when I realized that Bout of Books was coming up, I thought it would be a great opportunity to join in.

My Bout of Books Read-a-thon goals:
1. To aim for 2 hours of reading each day.
2. To make progress with and/or complete my current reads.
3. To make daily blog posts with my progress.

I am also looking forward to connecting with other bloggers who are participating in the event.

My Bout of Books Read-a-thon TBR:
I am going to stick with the books I have already selected for my May TBR pile, as my overall goal for this month is to have a better reading month than I did in April. This read-a-thon will be a great chance for me to make a dent in that pile.

Leave me a comment below if you are participating as well. Any tips for a first timer are greatly appreciated.


  1. The biggest tip I have for you is HAVE FUN! Don't stress and enjoy :)
