Bout of Books
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, January 6th and runs through Sunday, January 12th 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 9.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team

    My Bout of Books Updates

    1. Looking For Alaska was sad. I'm a sucker for happy ending and this just...made me sad. It was a good book despite not leaving feeling wonderful.

  2. Two books down! That is great :) And 'A Sweet Thing' is a monster! I haven't read it yet, but it is sitting on my shelf... intimidating me! Good luck!
