Bout of Books 13 Sign-Ups!

As this post goes up, I am headed on a plane for London. My birthday is on Sunday and I think London is a great place to celebrate. I have a post scheduled to go up on Sunday and I will be hosting my very first giveaway!

Well it's that time of year again folks. It's time for the Bout of Books Read-A-Thon!

I had such a great time participating in Bout of Books 12. I got a lot of reading done and I was able to meet some great bloggers in the process.

The Bout of Books Read-a-Thon is organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It's a week long read-a-thon that begins at 12:01am on Monday, May 11th and runs through Sunday, May 17th in whatever timezone 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 13 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog.

Last time I participated in the Bout of Books, I was able to read a lot more because my husband was out of town. No trips for him this time, but I am still going to do my best!

Here are my goals for this round of Bout of Books:

  • read at least 3 books
  • read for at least three hours every day (180 minutes)
  • participate in at least one Twitter chat
  • participate in at least two mini challenges
  • ENJOY everything I am reading!! No forcing myself to read something I am not excited about.

Are you planning to participate in the Bout of Books Read-a-Thon??


  1. I hope you have such a fun time in London! What a great way to celebrate your birthday. Thanks for having this post up. I would have completely missed Bout of Books!

  2. First, London!? That sounds so amazing, I hope you have an awesome time(and happy early birthday!).

    Sadly, I'm not doing Bout Of Books 13. I did it in August if last year(I think it was Bout Of Books 10) and it was so much fun and I loved it, but 12 and 13 have both happened at bad times for me! Good luck though, I hope you end up reading amazing books. =)

    1. Thanks so much Shay! That's a shame you aren't doing Bout of Books this time. I hope you can join the next one!

  3. Those are EXCELLENT goals. Particularly reading because you want to and no forcing. Good on you!! ;-) AND ALSO HAPPY-NEARLY-BIRTHDAY!!! *showers you with birthday cake*

    1. Thank you so much Cait! And I love birthday cake showers! :)
