Bout Of Books 17 Sign Up & Goals

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 12:01 am Monday, May 9th and runs through Sunday, May 15th 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 16 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books Team

Bout of Books was the very first readathon I ever participated in on this blog (and ever) so I make a point to join in every one that I can. I love week long readathons because there's plenty of time to fit in a little reading time no matter how busy I am. It is great motivation to knock out some of my TBR pile and is also a lot of fun.


I don't think I will be able to read as many books as I read during Bout of Books 16 back in May (finished 5 books.) I also can't quite say what I will be reading this early on but I do have a couple of shorter books on my TBR so I'm going to go ahead and put my goal at finishing 4 books. That's really kind of ambitious for just one week considering that I mostly have physical books and very little time to read them.

  1. Glad to see you're participating in this read-a-thon too!! I have yet to set any goals though.

  2. Fun! I'll have to think about joining up - I might actually have time this go around because it ends before I leave on vacation! I am trying to read a lot of ARCs this month, doing ARC August and all that!


  3. The cover for illuminaie is just so pretty! <3 Would look awesome on my bookshelf *thinking to herself*

    Happy page turning! Oh, and if you come across a 2016 book by a first-time author, please let me know! - J
