Bout of Books readathon sign up!

Ok, in case you aren’t totally tired of everything I read yesterday and seeing all of my posts, here is one more readathon that I’ll be committing to. This time it’s spread out over the span of seven days, so I won’t end up being so tired I feel drunk. (I keep telling people that because I just cannot get over it!)

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 love this. I read every day, but it will be fun during this week to focus on having a lot more reading time to get in. I am working on catching up on my GoodReads challenge (70 books) and right now I am only three behind after yesterday’s readathon! I would love for you to join me. Visit the link above to sign up! Check out my goals below:
