Bout of Books 14

Bout of Books

I haven’t participated this readathon for a while so I’m excited to join BOUT OF BOOKS 14! I can’t believe this is their 14th readathon. That’s insane and awesome šŸ˜€ Great job to the creators and participants!

The Bout of Books Read-a-Thon was created by Amanda @ On a Book Bender on a complete whim in August 2011*. It took on a life of its own and was such a hit that Amanda decided to do it again and turn it into a somewhat regular occurrence.

  • Bout of Books is a week long read-a-thon, usually from 12:01am on a Monday through 11:59pm on a Sunday in whatever time zone you are in.
  • It is low pressure, meaning participants are only asked to push themselves to read more than they normally would during any given week. There is no competition between readers.
  • How much time a reader wants, and can commit, to read, tweet, or network with fellow bloggers is left to individual preference. All challenges and giveaways are optional.
  • Networking with fellow bloggers is actively encouraged, though never required.
  • Use Twitter to post updates throughout the read-a-thon. Everyone will be tweeting with the #boutofbooks hashtag.

I’m not sure what I’ll be reading, but I do know I’ll be picking from my ARC pile since I’m also joining the ARC August readathon.What will YOU be reading?

    Ahhh so THIS is what Bout of Books is about. I keep hearing about this all over the place, and I had no idea what the heck it was xD You could possibly couple this with your ARC August challenge! Best of luck šŸ™‚

    I swear everytime there’s a Bout of Books readathon it always happens to be on a particularly busy week, so I’m unable to partake. Hope you get to read many awesome books next week, Leigh! Good luck!

    I’ve actually heard about Bout of Books since the day I first started book blogging haha. Can’t believe it’s still continued up until today! That’s crazy šŸ™‚ I wish I could participate, but I’ve fallen into a horrible on-again, off-again reading slump so I don’t think that it’s going to help if I’d join. Next time I would ^_^ Weee thanks for sharing about this Leigh ā¤

    Good luck, Leigh! I don’t have much time this week so I won’t be officially joining. I DO hope to get as much reading in as I can though.

    YAAAAY I’m so excited that you’re participating!! I can’t believe this readathon has been going on for so long- I was around when it first started up, so it makes me feel old, haha. I can’t wait to see how much you read! Reading books for ARC August is such a good idea- you’ll be knocking out two birds with one stone, it seems. šŸ˜€

    Happy reading, Leigh! <33
