Here's what Bout of Books is all about: 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, August 19th and runs through Sunday, August 25th 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 8.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team
I am so excited for this - my very first read-a-thon ever! I just started blogging in June, and I'm still discovering all the wonders of the book blogging world. It's great that this read-a-thon is low-pressure. There's only two and a half weeks until school starts, and I have so much to do! I'm all prepared with books to read. I just went to the library today (okay, three libraries). Just when my stack of library books got manageable, I loaded it up again. Got to take advantage of these last few weeks of summer, right? And a read-a-thon is the perfect way to do that!
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.
