Bout of Books

I am never available for a 24 hour read-a-thon, so let’s try Bout of Books this year, for this first time. This lasts a whole week!

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 12th
and runs through Sunday, May 18th
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 10 information and updates,
be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog.

  2. Murder in Pigalle, by Cara Black – audio
  3. Hymns of Divine Love, by St Symeon the New Theologian
  4. Everyday Saints, by Archimandrite Tikhon

  6. The Girl In The Empty Dress, by Lise McClendon – ebook
  7. Baudelaire’s Revenge, by Bob Van Laerhoven

My ultimate goal would be to read 85 pages/day so with a total of 595 pages, higher than my usual daily average.
