Bout of Books 17: Day 1 recap

Bout of Books Aug 2016#boutofbooks


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 22nd
and runs through Sunday, August 28th
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 17 information and updates,
be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog.

  1. I took part in the insane Twitter Chat party. I’m a bit disappointed that we have the same questions every year, but I met many new book bloggers
  2. Did the challenge of the day on movies to books
  3. I posted a bookgiveaway
  4. And I posted another interview + giveaway of The House of Kane, by Barbara Casey


I did mange to read over 70 pages, but this is actually a bad week. I can only read in the evenings, and I have a Church function tonight, a class at the library on Wednesday, and my block book club meeting on Friday! Will have to catch up on the other days!

Here is the rest of the schedule:


Tuesday 8/23
Bout of Books — Mix ‘n Match

Wednesday 8/24
Bout of Books — Show Off Your Shelves Photo Challenge

Thursday 8/25
The Book Junkie — Titles in the Tabloids

Friday 8/26
Janey Canuck — Book in a Song

Saturday 8/27

Sunday 8/28

Twitter Chats
(chats last approximately one hour)
TZC = Time Zone Conversion

Saturday: 10am CST (TZC)

My challenge this week is to read 490 pages (average of 70 pages/day).
Not counting some time for audiobooks as well.
