Bout of Books Wrap 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.

Lauren's Wrap up:
So this is it. The end of the week! Oh my, did it go super quick for anyone else? Unfortunately I didn't spend as much time reading as I had hoped too, the thought that I'm moving out in under a month has left me kind of all over the place and I keep sleeping pretty badly too, worrying that I'm going to get lost in a new city. But whilst I didn't read LOADS, I did however do something I wanted too and that was to finish off some of the books I was part way through reading, seeing as though I was reading about 9 at the start of the read-a-thon.

Lewis' Wrap Up:
My final thoughts on the readathon would be that it was awesome. It felt good to finally really get a push and start reading more. I enjoyed it a lot more than what I thought, even though I slacked on some days, I still had fun and a good time.
