Bout of Books Readathon


Welcome to the “sign up” post for the Bout of Books Readathon! This is the tenth round of Bout of Books, but I haven’t participated until now. That being said, this marks my fourth readathon for 2014. I love getting together with others for a set period of time where we’re all obsessing over books, so I’m excited to extend the traditional 24-48 hour readathon into a week-long event. Read on for more information…

The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, May 12th and runs through Sunday, May 18th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure, and the only reading competition is between you and your usual number of books read in a week. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 10 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team

I’ll have to decide on a set reading list when the readathon begins, but here is a list of potential books for the reading fest:

Two by Leigh Ann Kopans
Looking for Alaska
by John Green
A Short Autobiography by F. Scott Fitzgerald
An Artist of the Floating World by Kazuo Ishiguro
The Only Boy by Jordan Locke
Ethan Frome and Selected Stories by Edith Wharton
This Is How You Lose Her by Junot Diaz
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer
A Girl Is A Half-Formed Thing by Eimear McBride
A Room with A View by E.M. Forster

Can’t wait to get started with everyone a week from tomorrow!
