Bout of Books 14 Master Post

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 17th and runs through Sunday, August 23rd 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 14 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team


I survived my second Bout of Books Read-a-thon and I am so happy with my progress this week. I was able to finish 3 books! I figured I would at least complete 1, but 3! Wahoo. In just 7 days I was able to more than make up for my lack of reading in July. I am very much looking forward to participating again in January.

Day 4 wasn't the most productive for me. I got most of my reading done in the morning but was busy for the rest of the day. I hope to get Pretty Hip and Dead done on day 5 and possibly A Bride at Last done by Sunday. I didn't participate in today's challenge.
