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 11th and runs through Sunday, May 17th 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 13 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team
I don't usually participate in read-a-thons like this during the school year. My evenings are typically filled with grading papers and other school-like things. But since this Bout of Books is in May, and the school year is starting to wind down . . . well, let's just say I probably shouldn't participate, but I'm going to anyway. Reading is a necessary part of life. Might as well do it whenever I can! :)
My name is Julie, and I own a lot of books. As in, they are stacked on the floor because I've run out of room on the shelves. And those shelves? There are so many books on them that they smile -- not sag; smile. This blog will cover book reviews and all manner of other bookish things.
