The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda Shofner and Kelly Rubidoux Apple. 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. There are challenges, Twitter chats, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 26 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team


Last one of 2019, and it starts after the kids are back in school full time and husband is working full time. So there is no excuse for me not to knock this readathon out of the park. 



1. 4 Daily Challenges

2. 4 IG Challenges

3. Participate in both chats (live in the same time zone as readathon hosts)

4. 2500 pages - I went with pages rather than a number of books because I plan on reading novellas and short stories that have been gathering dust on my NOOK. Plus, I will be reading from The Final Days throughout the week. 


I am going to try and write the reviews of books I've read within a day of finishing them so I am not overwhelmed by so many pending reviews the last week of August. I'm trying for a relaxed yet productive read rather than take on big projects.
