As you can see, I decided to participate in a read-a-thon, more specifically the 22nd round of the Bout of Books read-a-thon! It’s been ages since I have last taken part in one of these, mostly because I was very busy during the times they took place
(or I forgot about them until it was too late). So, even though I’m busy this month as well, I still have enough time to read at least a little bit – I just wanted to participate in a bookish community event.
What is Bout of Books?
The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda Shofner and Kelly Rubidoux Apple. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, May 14th and runs through Sunday, May 20th in whatever time zone 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 22 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team
What are my reading plans for this read-a-thon?
I don’t have any particular books I want to get to, as you may know I’m horrible when it comes to set TBRs
(so I’m not even going to try). I’m actually going to be adding up all the pages I read for a total summary at the end of the week (as I tend to read multiple books at the same time) – so I basically don’t have to finish any books, but rather read as many pages throughout the week as possible. That seems like a reasonable goal to me, especially since I will still be busy with university and other life things.
