The Bout of Books readathon is organized
by Amanda Shofner and Kelly Rubidoux Apple.
It’s a weeklong readathon that begins Monday, August 15
and runs through Sunday, August 21 in YOUR time zone.
Bout of Books is low-pressure.
There are reading sprints, Twitter chats,
and exclusive Instagram challenges,
but they’re all completely optional
For Bout of Books 35 information and updates,

I’ve never done this but it sounds fun. Good luck!
It can be a neat way to speed up your reading by challenging yourself, and of connecting with bloggers new to you
I was a little bit tempted, and then not, because (i) I’m away next week, with grandchildren (therefore little reading) and (ii) I’m not on Twitter, which sounds like a deal-breaker to me. But it sounds fun, so good luck!
You really don’t need to be on Twitter. I’m actually no longer doing the two chats, as it’s more or less the same questions each time. Enjoy your time with your grandchildren!
