There is going to be another Bout-of-Books in January so I plan to do a lot better.  Hope if you participated you had a better run than I did but if you didn’t you should consider doing it in January.  It is a lot of  fun and can really help you get caught up on you reading goals.

For those that don’t know what Bout of Books is… here you go:

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 18th and runs through Sunday, August 24th 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 11 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team

I have been in a slump and I am hoping this read-a-thon will pull me out of it.  I  did not do so well with the Under-hyped books  read-a-thon so I am hoping this one will go a lot better.  Everyone  should participate too because it is a lot of fun.   Go sign up on the Bout of Books blog!
