Bout of Books Read-a-thon
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, January 6th and runs through Sunday, January 12th 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 9.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog- From the Bout of Books team

You can check back in to see how I’m doing and cheer me on! I’m going to enjoy every minute of it because when classes start back I have to cut back on my reading…this will be a luxury! Leave me a comment and let me know if you’re participating and I’ll come by and see what your up to! Happy Reading everyone!!!

UPDATE: I completed my goal! 4 books read and 100 plus blogs commented on! This read-a-thon was so much fun and I will definitely join again next time! I hope everyone else met their goal and read lots of great books :)
