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 12:01 am Monday, August 22nd and runs through Sunday, August 28th 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.

I had a great read-a-thon. I got a lot of reading (and listening) done. I think participating in a read-a-thon tends to make me use my extra time reading instead of goofing around on-line.
