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
This must be the 4th time I participate in this event. The first two times, I just tweeted about it. Then I started blogging. I usually set goals on when I’ll read and how much I’ll participate in the twitter-chats (which are really awesome) and other community-centered-things, like the challenges.
This time, I am going in with NO goals.
Well, actually, it might be one goal:
Relax and have fun.
I am looking forward to reading, getting to know new people and new blogs, cheering everyone on, adding way too many books to my TBR-pile, and the feeling of togetherness that always arises during this weeklong reading marathon. And now say it all with me: FLAILING NOT FAILING!
