It’s that time of year again! The birds are chirping. The weather is mostly nice. What better time than to participate in a week long readathon? Sponsored by Bout of Books, this week’s challenge starting tomorrow is read read read. Unlike Dewey’s 24 Hour that I just participated in a few weeks ago, Bout of Books is a week long event where there are mini challenges every day to compete for a prize.

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, May 9th and runs through Sunday, May 15th 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 16 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team

Bout of books is one of my favorite events to participate in. It forces me to read more, and take time for leisure activities when I am so busy with work.

I know you probably want some reviews of all my recent books read–believe me, they are coming. I am trying to start a blog for my job, so that has taken time. I am no good at multi-tasking, I swear. Reviews, progress updates on Bout of Books, and more is coming. I still want to release a new surprise feature. It’s just finding the time right now.

Well, I’m off to start prepping for tomorrow’s readathon. Let me know if you are joining in on the fun!

Happy reading!
