The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda Shofner and Kelly Rubidoux Apple. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, January 7th and runs through Sunday, January 13th 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 24 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team

The best way to launch your 2019 reading year is to join Bout of Books. You set your own goal and you meet lots of other book bloggers!

For my last Bout of Books, I read a total of 783, with an average of 111 pages/day.
So my goal for Bout of Books 24 is to read 805 pages, an average of 115 pages/day.

And I will organize a giveaway!

Here are the books I plan to read from. Mostly from books I’m currently reading:

  1. Prayers by the Lake, by Nikolaj Velimirovic
  2. Are We French Yet?, by Keith Van Sickle
  3. Berlin AlexanderPlatz, by Alfred Döblin
  4. Hear Our Defeats, by Laurent Gaudé
  5. Don Quixote, by Cervantes
  6. Audiobook: The Moonstone, by Wilkie Collins
