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.

WHAT I READ ON DAY 1:
- Time and Regret, by M.K. Tod = 49 pages
- Exit Strategy, by Colleen Cross = 6 pages read + 6 translated = 12 pages
- Patristic Theology, by John Romanides = 14 pages
- no audio time
TOTAL PAGES IN DAY 1= 75 pages
PAGES READ SO FAR= 75 pages
- 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
- Did the challenge of the day on movies to books
- I posted a bookgiveaway
- 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:
Bout of Books — Mix ‘n Match
Bout of Books — Show Off Your Shelves Photo Challenge
The Book Junkie — Titles in the Tabloids
Janey Canuck — Book in a Song
(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.
