I am making a spur of the moment decision and signing up for the Bout of Books readathon this week! Yay! I think the early half of this week should be somewhat quiet for me, so it's a good week to do a readathon. If you don't know anything about Bout of Books, here's a blurb from their website about 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, August 18th and runs through Sunday, August 24th 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 11 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team
My personal goal is to read about two hours a day. Lisa and I are reading The Bitter Kingdom by Rae Carson this week, so that's mostly what I will be focused on.
