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 12th and runs through Sunday, May 18th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure, and the only reading competition is between you and your usual number of books read in a week. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 10 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team
I wasn't even thinking about this until I saw all #boutofbooks pictures on Instagram. I did what any other normal "too curious for their own good" person would do - I googled it. My reaction - let's do this.
I have so many books on my TBR pile that I don't even know where to start, but for my first read-a-thon I decided to clean out ARC shelf.
Take Me On by Katie McGarry
We Were Liars by E. Lockhart
Played by Liz Fichera
Whisper To Me by Christina Lee
Twitter chats (at least one)
I really hope that there will be no surprises next week and that I'll manage to read all books. You can follow my progress on Twitter and Instagram - I'll post my updates frequently - an of course in this post. I will add what I did at the end of every day.
If you are participating, please don't be shy - send me tweets and comment on my pictures on Instagram. I'll be stalking you all next week *insert evil laugh* .
Good luck, everyone, and remember - have fun!
Good luck, Glass! I'm planning to read Take Me On and We Were Liars very soon as well. I hope they're good! *fingers crossed*OdgovoriIzbriši
Good luck- I've been thinking about joining in too; I should have some more free time this week. We Were Liars is great; should be a quick read for you!OdgovoriIzbriši
All awesome books Glass. Good luck!OdgovoriIzbriši
I really want to read We Were Liars, have heard so much great stuff about it! Good luck with your readathon!OdgovoriIzbriši
Great books to mark off your reading list! Best of luck and happy reading!OdgovoriIzbriši
yes i'm participating too! hopefully i'll be able to read more than i usually do. I have 4 books on my tbr (well three and a half since i'm currently reading one of them). I somehow failed to include any contemporary books for this readathon and I think that was stupid of me since they are faster reads :P I read We Were Liars, such an addicting book! Hope you achieve your goals!! :DOdgovoriIzbriši

I didn't even realize that it was already up. I completely forgot, but it's a bad week for me anyways because I'm in my final week of university and have finals to take. Good luck!OdgovoriIzbriši
