Bout of Books 7.0 Reaad-a-thon!


I am so excited to finally be getting to post another participation blurb for the exciting, riveting, and much anticipated BOUT OF BOOKS Read-A-Thon!

The Read-A-Thon starts in 14 days. That would be the 13th of May, doll babies. So get your reading chair ready because this is one whirl-wind reading bonanza!

The Read-A-Thon is one week long and is open to anyone interested in joining, even if you don't have a blog. There are daily challenges, fun giveaways, and twitter chats that always #trend thanks to the passionate and fun attitudes of the people who participate.

So hop on board!

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 13th and runs through Sunday, May 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 7.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team

 Auggie's Goals

I'm going to go lite this time. The last round my goals were 7 books in 7 days with a video review for each book. That was WAY difficult. Because my schedule is more hectic my goals are as follows:

5 books to read - 3 of my choice, and 2 review works that have been sent to me.
3 update Vlogs  - I'll post regular blog updates daily, but I also goal to have 3 update VLOGS as well.

Time Devoted to Reading

Because I've been dealing with a lot of big transitions lately there hasn't been as much focus on sitting down and reading like I used to. Now that I'm finally getting settled (I'll be moved in to my new apartment by the time the Read-A-Thon stars!) It's time for me to dig back in to that TBR pile of mine! 

My goal is to read every day for at least two hours.


So?! What are you waiting for?!  The sign up linky is going up TOMORROW! Get your sign up post ready! Meet great readers and bloggers and challenge yourself with a read-a-thon frenzy!

Until Next Blog,

Read On! 



  1. Really looking forward to this. I'll be checking back to your blog to see what you decide to read. :)

  2. I've never signed up for a read-a-thon because I don't read as many books as most bloggers but I like your idea of just competing against my usual pace! I'll have to sign up and see what I can do!
