What? Another readathon?


I discovered the fun of readathons about the same time I discovered BookTube. I enjoy the challenges they present and it’s motivating to have the knowledge that this (sometimes) massive group of people is reading at the same time. Now! As it stands, I am actually 6 books ahead of schedule for my GoodReads challenge this year (WHAAAATTTT?!) annnnnd this readathon isn’t an all day event like Dewey’s.

The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda Shofner and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, May 8th and runs through Sunday, May 14th 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 19 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog – From the Bout of Books team

As of tomorrow, I shall be participating in the Bout of Books 19! I’ve never done this one but it looks like they have daily challenges so, expect some daily updates.

Let’s talk TBR.
Currently, I have 4 books out from my library and they are due back on May 16th. Thus, this is perfect timing! These books are:
  1. Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow–currently about 200 pages into this monstrosity
  2. Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? by Mindy Kailing–currently 25 pages into this.
  3. . Petticoat…something…It’s about sex scandals way back.
  4. Clash of Kings by George R. R. Martin

Now! My ultimate goal for the 16th is to be returning the first three books and into the 4th, and hopefully being able to renew it.

If I somehow end up getting through all of these–I have 30 some odd NetGalley reads to get to annnnd 10 books borrowed from Amazon. I also have a lovely stack of books lent to me by friends and family to get to. In other words, plenty to choose from.

I’m hoping to read at least a few hours each day during this readathon and update each day.

Yay readathon!
