Bout of Books ~ I'm Participating!

Bout of Books

It's almost Bout of Books time! :) WOOOOHOOOO! I am definitely signing up, this will be my 2nd one! Don't know about Bout of Books? Here's the official info ~

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.

If you are curious about how I did on my 1st Bout of Books, back in May, here in a link to my final post, and my great stats for the week ~

May Bout of Books ~ The End

First my combined stats ~
  • I completed 4 BoB RaT Challenges
  • I read for 47 Hours
  • I completed 17 books
  • I read 4796 pages
  • I completed 7 novels, 2 novellas & 1 short story on my Kindle Fire
  • I listened to 7 audiobooks (the Lemony Snicket series)

I haven't begun to think of goals for this time around, but I will do so. I don't know if I can surpass what I did before, I hope to at least surpass the page count, if I read some longer books. We shall see. I can't wait!! :)

I look forward to the Read-a-Thon and especially to reading all the blogs and following along with everyone! See y'all then!

If y'all follow me on Bloglovin' (the only place I follow blogs, I also don't do Twitter), I'll follow you back and post tons of encouragement. I love visiting blogs and connecting with other readers almost as much as I enjoy reading all week long!


  1. Yay - I'm signing up today! Can't wait!

  2. So glad you're participating again. I'm trying to figure out what to set for goals since I totally flubbed the Wicked Wildfire & High Summer, but I'll be reading something!

  3. This is my second Bout of Books, too! I didn't do as well as I'd hoped with the last one, but I've set my goals pretty low this time around. I can't believe you read SEVENTEEN books last time! Wow!

    1. It was a good time last time. I hope to beat it this time, but we'll see. :) I'm doing a GR team challenge as well, so I'm trying to do a lot for that, plus this. My month has already been a crazy month of reading. Love it. :)
