I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling 22!
Just kidding. I’m not, but Bout of Books is! Or rather, this read-a-thon is on its 22nd run haha. My apologies for the weird/cheesy/awkward intro, but my hubster and I like to sing songs that have lyrics with certain numbers associated with them. So I was channeling that at the forefront of this post.
This is my third time participating in BoB, so I’m on the verge of ‘expert,’ status (yay for almost achieving small goals!). And even though this May appears to be a little crazy for me socially speaking, I’m still signing up for this read-a-thon.
It’s always proven to be a great time. A lot of Twitter socializing, challenges, giveaways, & the like over the course of a week.
For those of you who don’t know what Bout of Books is, check the information below:
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 14th and runs through Sunday, May 20th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 22 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog.
The thing I love most about this read-a-thon is its lowkey-ness. There’s no pressure to read a mountain of books. Though if you’re the type of person that can, more power to you. But I am not. I will be lucky if I get through 4. But still, in my mind that’s pretty impressive, since most of my books are at a minimum of 300 pages.
I’m also pretty excited because I found out that one of my challenge ideas is going to be used. So that’s kind of cool! *grins like a big eyed emoji about it*
But as far as my TBR goes, I’m not ready to decide it just yet. I’ll probably post a picture of my desired reads for this on Insta closer to the date, so stay tuned!
Any of my other fellow readers doing BoB 22? Where do you gals/guys post your updates for read-a-thons? Your blog? Twitter? Insta? Other methods?
I’m still mulling over how I will update my progress in this year’s Bout of Books.
But anyway, make sure you sign up bookworms! This is truly a grand ole’ time!
