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, May 13th
and runs through Sunday, May 19th in whatever time zone you are in.
Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, Twitter chats, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional.
For all Bout of Books 25 information and updates,

After a super active reading schedule in March, April got very low for me with lots of things going on, especially at Church, so I’m glad Bout of Books is coming to restart an energetic reading phase.
My goal is the same as for Bout of Books 24, as I didn’t manage to reach it: 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. Some I’m currently reading.
- If You Love Me, by Matthew the Poor
- A Long Way Down, by Randall Silvis
- Talk to Me: How Voice Computing Will Transform the Way We Live, Work, and Think, by James Vlahos
- Don Quixote, by Cervantes (read-along)
- The Story of the Stone, by Cao Xueqin
- Audiobook: Sang Famille, by Michel Bussi
**This is the overall list for the challenges offered during Bout of Books 25. Make sure you check the blog each day of the read-a-thon for instructions and details on how to complete the daily challenges**

Cheers! Good luck next week!
thanks. will you do it as well?
Have fun! I have been reading some long books. It is killing my books read stats but I am having fun.
BUT it will be great for your end of year number of pages!! I have a hard time finishing Don Quijote, just because I’m reading it on my computer, as my other devices have already a lot going on…
I can’t wait! Hope you have a wonderful Bout of Books #25!
It will help my stats, lol. Enjoy the adventure as well!
