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, August 19th
and runs through Sunday, Ausgu 25th 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.

I’m 5 books behind my yearly schedule of reading, so Bout Of Books should help. Plus, I hope to connect with the newer generation of book bloggers!
My goal is the same as for Bout of Books 25, 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.
- Elder Leonid of Optina, by Fr Clement Sederholm
- Don Quixote, by Cervantes
- Quichotte, by Salman Rushdie
- The Dark Lake, by Sarah Bailey
- Secret Agent Brainteasers, by Sinclair McKay
- If You Cross the River, by Geneviève Damas
- Audiobook: Le mystère de la chambre jaune, by Gaston Leroux
- Audiobook: Surface, by Olivier Noreck
**This is the overall list for the challenges offered during Bout of Books 26. Make sure you check the blog each day of the read-a-thon for instructions and details on how to complete the daily challenges**
