Hey book lovers- It’s almost Bout of Books time again!


That’s right! Bout of Books is starting up again August 19th, and I just signed up.
What is Bout of Books?

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

This will be my third time doing it, so I’m excited!
My bloggy BFF Janie (formerly Sarah- read about her name change/identity crisis here) introduced me to Bout of Books, and this will be here fifth time participating in it. I’m so glad she turned me on to these read-a-thons!
Thinking of joining Bout of Books? You should. If you love books as much as I do, it’s a great excuse to sit on your butt an read a ton. What could be better? And the Twitter chats are a really cool way to meet some new nerdy friends and find some new blogs to read. The Twitter chats are probably one of my favorite parts of Bout of Books (besides the reading!) because I’ve made some pretty awesome friends that way. Book lovers make the best tweeters! 🙂 {Hint: you should follow me on Twitter!}
Are you ready to sign up too? Go here and check it out.
I’ll be posting my goals as the read-a-thon gets a little closer, so check back later!
