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, August 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 super happy with Day 1, especially as I used one hour of my usual evening reading time to participate in the Twitter Chat!

I also did 2 challenges:

– on Twitter, Introduce yourself #insixwords
– on Instagram, currently reading

  • And I participated in the twitter chat. I enjoyed meeting a few new bloggers, and getting a couple of books recommendations. It was nice to have a few new questions.
    Every year we are asked how many boutofbooks we’ve participated in, and I never really know. So I took time to go through my blog, and the answer is BoutofBooks26 is my #13!
  • And posted a giveaway!!
