I've seen this read-a-thon on other blogs and always wanted to participate but, for some reason or another, I never did... So this will be my first time participating in this read-a-thon. Since it's a low pressure read-a-thon, it should be fun!
These are the basics:
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 19th and runs through Sunday, August 25th 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 8.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team
As for my goals, I'm not going to be very strict with myself:
- Finish The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society which I started today
- Read at least 50 pages per day (it doesn't sound like much but it is for me, now that I'm back to work)
- Update my status everyday
