Bout of Books 8.0 Sign Up

What is Bout of Books?
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.

It's almost Bout of Books time! This will be my fourth time taking part in this read-a-thon, and this time I'm dragging along Lewis, my best friend, to be apart of it too. Lewis is new to the whole reading thing because I *ahem* heavily encouraged he should pick up a book once in a while rather than complaining of being bored, and guess what? He actually enjoyed himself, yipee. Any how as he doesn't have his own blog I'll be posting his updates on Northern Plunder along with mine

As we've still got a bit of time before Bout of Books starts I'm not going to decide on any goals yet, I'll post them at the start of the read-a-thon instead because I'm not sure where either of us will be on our reading pile. I wish you all luck!

  1. Yay! It's my 2nd time doing it and I had a lot of fun the first time! I still don't have goals yet either.

    1. Same here! I'm so excited for it and to bring along a friend too c:

  2. I know this isn't about Bout of Books (though I will be participating in that too) but I wanted to thank you for telling me about Minecraft on the PC... it sounds way more like what I was looking for in the Multiplayer game type! I will be checking it out for sure!

  3. Hurrah for a new reading recruit!
