I've been itching for another read-a-thon to participate in and I discovered that this one begins the day after my last day of work at my current job. I'm going to be moving across the country soon, so I'm taking some time off from work to get things packed up and ready to go, but first, I'll be taking the week of Aug. 18 - 24th off from everything except for reading!
Here's the official blurb from the Bout of Books Site:
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
