Coming Soon: Bout of Books 11.0 Read-a-thon

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

It's almost that time again!

I've been very neglectful of my reading goals this year (ever since I found out that I'm expecting and have been focusing on research and preparation instead of reading fiction) and I feel as if this read-a-thon might get me back on track, if only just a itty bitty bit.
To be honest, I've been stuck on the same fiction novel (as well as a few pregnancy/baby books and a book of poetry that I read aloud to my baby in utero) for almost a month or more. I've just been very distracted and haven't had any sort of motivation to read. I'm hoping that this read-a-thon will get me beyond this little roadblock and get me reading again, especially since I'm getting bigger and will be doing a lot of sitting around for the next couple of months.
I probably won't get through more than a couple of smaller books but it will still be better than I've done in the past few months!

I'll be updating my slow progress on my Twitter so do me a favor and help keep me motivated! I participated in Bout of Books 8.0(? I think?) Read-a-thon and read 8 books so if I'm going to get anywhere close to that amount I'm definitely going to need a good push every couple of days!
