and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal.
It is a week long read-a-thon that begins
12:01am Monday, January 2nd
and runs through Sunday, January 8th
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.

I think my challenge will be to read 490 pages (average of 70 pages/day), but I may edit this when I do my statistics for 2016: once I compute exactly how many pages per day I read throughout 2016, I would like to challenge myself to do more during that first week of 2017!
Not counting some time for audiobooks as well.
And I will organize a giveaway!
