Bout of Books Read-a-Thon 8.0

August 12, 2013

It's time for another read-a-thon! I'm looking forward to bringing myself out of this reading slump. Here is more about this read-a-thon:
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, August 19th and runs through Sunday, August 25th 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 8.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team

So I have prepared a list of books I would like to read during the week:

Maus by Art Spiegelman 
Deathnote by Tsugumi Ohba
The Death Cure by James Dashner
- The Near Witch by Victoria Shwab
Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

I'm super excited to get into these books, and I can't wait to participate in some of the challenges! I've always been lazy on that part...

Will anyone be partaking in this read-a-thon?

  2. I'm participating in the BOB 8.0, and I did my first one earlier in the year. You've got a great list of books (most of them are on my to-read shelf)...enjoy!

    BTW, you are highly entertaining in your vlogs!

  3. Hi! I am just starting up my own blog, and am struggling with the coding on a "grab my button" widget similar to yours. I was wondering if you would be willing to share your code, and I could just replace the parts that pertain to your blog. I have been trying all day to get it right, but no matter what I do, the text in the text box won't show up. I would really appreciate it if you could help!

  4. Great list, especially Maus!! :) Have fun!

  5. Love some Bout of Books!! Good luck with your goals/reads!

  6. I'm curious to see what you thought of Shadow and Bone. I'm still a little hesitant about whether or not to pick it up. Best of luck with this readathon!

  7. good luck on bout of books read-a-thon, i'm sure you'll do great and i also wanted to say thank since i found out about this great read-a-thon through your video on YouTube, keep up the good work :)

  8. Good luck!! Death Note is so good! Loved that manga! Hope you enjoy!
