Bout of Books Read-a-Thon

I've decided to participate in another readathon this summer, just because of the fact that this one is a no-pressure readathon. I am not going to try and read as many books as possible, but I will be keeping a track of all the pages I've read! And because it's fun participating in readathons! The first one I participated in turned out to be a lot of fun and I hope this one is too!

This one is called the 'Bout of Books Read-a-thon' and it is hosted by Amanda from On A Book Bender. Here are some details that might get you interested!

Quick Notes
  • If you haven’t signed up yet, do it now!   This link will bring you to the sign up form.
  • You must be signed up in order to enter any of the TEN super awesome giveaways.
  • The sign up form for the read-a-thon will be open through Saturday 8/27.
  • Find a list of everyone signed up to participate on my Bout of Books Master List page.  Please say hi to your fellow readathoners!  You may make new blogging friends.
  • I’ve got a list on Twitter of everyone who indicated they’d be updating on Twitter.  It includes everyone but me because apparently I can’t add myself to my own list.  I’d suggest using it for finding other Bout of Books Readathoners rather than staying updated on their progress.
  • If you do want to track everyone’s progress run a search for #boutofbooks (or click my link).  Just don’t forget to use #boutofbooks yourself!  It will be easier to keep track of everyone and cheer them on this way.

In this readathon, as I mentioned before, I am not going to strive to read as many books as possible. But there are some that I would really like to finish as part of it.

  • Fury by Elizabeth Miles
  • The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova
  • Divergent by Veronica Roth
  • Amy & Roger's Epic Detour by Morgan Matson
  • Fake Me A Match by Lauren Barnholdt
  • The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
  • Spellbound by Cara Lynn Shultz
So, that's 7 books. I don't think I will manage to read that many, especially considering that The Historian is 700 pages long and Divergent is another 500, but I can still try, right? I am not sure when I will be doing the progress updates, but probably once a day, sometime in the evening.

Come on and sign up too! Just click on the links up there! 


  1. Good luck! I'll probably do the Dewey readathon in October as I've booked a recovery day off work. I need my sleep these days! I thought The Historian was a bit overlong even though the story was good, hope you get through it quicker than I did!

  2. Good luck!! You may not get through all 7 books, but you can definitely give it a go :D

  3. I've had The Historian on my bookshelf forever (or make that 5 years, I bought it from Borders in one of the many 3 for 2 sales, go figure) and really should read it, it looks fantastic. Can't wait to see what you think, if you review it of course.
    Good luck!


I love comments!! You really make my day when you leave me one! :)
