Bout of Books 5.0 Wrap-Up

Bout of Books 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 13th and runs through Sunday, August 19th 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 5.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog.

  1. You got really close to your goals and that’s great even though you didn’t manage to read all 1500 pages. That is a big goal by the way. 🙂
    I didn’t manage to participate at any of the twitter chats, I always forget when they are and the time usually isn’t good for me. 😛 I hope next time we both manage to reach our goals.

  2. Nice readathon! It’s always hard choosing between reading, challenges and commenting. There is so much going on that I always feel like I missing something cool.
