My First Readathon: Bout of Books

I’ll be participating in the Bout of Books readathon this week and couldn’t be more excited! What is Bout of Books? Well…

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, May 9th and runs through Sunday, May 15th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 16 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team
This is my first readathon, so I’m super excited about how low pressure and chill the whole thing seems to be. I have a busy week full of work and life and all that nonsense, so I’m going with a pretty simple, modest goal: 24 hours of reading over 7 days. That feels like not a lot of reading, but I’m all about achievable goals lately. I don’t have a book count in mind, but I would like to read at least some of the following:

I’ll also be listening to Diana Gabaldon’s Voyager, but given that the book is 43 hours long, I’m pretty sure I won’t be finishing that one.

Happy reading!


  1. I’m participating too, this will be my second Bout of Books! It’s definitely a good Readathon to start with 🙂 I just bought The Story of a New Name (even though I haven’t finished My Brilliant Friend yet, I want to be able to pick it up right after I finish).
