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, January 4th and runs through Sunday, January 10th 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 15 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team
Bout of Books was the first ever read-a-thon I participated in. It’s been awhile though. What better way to kick off the new year? My TBR shelf is brimming with books begging to be read. And that’s exactly what I plan on doing this year. While I love new shiny books so much I need to not forget the books I already have. This year is all about the books I already own. That’s not to say I won’t be reading new releases or I won’t be buying new books because let’s be honest with ourselves (that’s always the first step). I haven’t picked what books I’ll be reading for the read-a-thon yet as the challenges haven’t been posted, but I’ll be sure to let you know. You can follow me on Twitter/Instagram/Snapchat all @lavendermud to get live updates as the read-a-thon progresses. So if you didn’t quite meet your Goodreads reading challenge for 2015 or you want to get a jump start on your goal for 2016 then join.
