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 6th
and runs through Sunday, January 12th 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 hesitating about doing Bout of Books this time, because my Church follows the Julian calendar. Hence, I will have a three hour Vigils prayer service on January 6 to prepare for the Feast of the Nativity of Christ, aka as Christmas. And Church again on the morning of the 7th for Nativity Divine Liturgy (aka as Mass by the Roman Catholics), and a big party on the evening of January 7th. So I’ll basically won’t be able to read on the 6th and 7th.

So I’m lowering my goal to 575 pages. 

And I will organize a giveaway!

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

  1. Theological Territories, by David Bentley Hart
  2. Sanshiro, by Natsume Soseki
  3. The Ten Loves of Mr Nishino, by Hiromi Kawakami
  4. Audiobook: The Book of Tea, by Kakuzo Hokakura
  5. Audiobook: The Book of Genesis
  6. Audiobook: The Red House Mystery, by A. A. Milne
