A Read-a-thon?! Yes, please.

Bout of Books
I’m home from vacation and trolling the internet planning my blog’s editorial calendar for the next several weeks. Much to my delight, Tanya@ Mom’s Small Victories posted about the upcoming Bout of Books Read-a-thon.
Be still my heart.
Here’s the deets from the hostesses:
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
Such a great excuse to read more, connect with other bookworms and promote your blog. If you’d like to participate, craft a sign-up post (feel free to mimic mine), then head over to the official linky at Bout of Books. Hurry, the sign up closes on Tuesday August 19th at 11:59pm CDT.
I can’t take on a challenge without a clear direction in mind (‘cuz I’m control-freakish like that), so here’s a short list of what I intend to read this week:
1. An advanced reader copy of The Land Uncharted by Keely Brooke Keith
2. The Flower Girls by Wendy Paine Miller
3. Wish by Jake Smith
How about you? Wanna savor these last bits of summer by diving into a page-turner?


  1. Thanks for the mention Heidi and so glad you are joining in. I did the Book Scavenger hunt today andit was such fun. Time to dive into my ARC of The Story Hour now that kiddos are in bed!

    Hope you mark your calendar, I will be co-hosting a Travel the World in Books Readathon starting Sept 1 – 14. The goal is to read books set in other countries or written by authors from other countries. Our small part in the #Weneeddiversebooks movement 🙂 Should be fun and relaxing!


    • Heidi:

      That sounds wonderful, Tanya. My calendar is officially marked. I hope you’re getting lots read this week.
