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.
Well the second day of the Bout of Books Read-a-thon is now in the books and once again I am very pleased with my progress. I'm not the type of person who can sit and read for hours on end. Instead I will read a few chapters here, then put my book down. A little while later I will pick it up again and do the same. Sometimes I may read for 10 or 15 minutes and other times I may read for half an hour. It all depends on whats going on around me and my mood at the time. At the end of the day those minutes and the pages read add up.
I decided to dedicate this second day to reading, so I didn't end up doing the challenge, but I did visit a bunch of different bloggers who are also participating in the read-a-thon.
