Bout of Booooooooooks!

Ok, disclaimer heading in - I have either some kind of awful cold or the mother of all hayfever and I think the meds are going to my head so there will be a lot of elongated vowels, repetition of words, half finished sentences, and me generally not being able to make my brain work to link things and such.

So now that's done, yay Bout of Books is back! :-) I participated a while back because of Ellie doing all the readathons last year and me being jealous, mostly, and it was goooooood and I'm super excited that it's happening again in a couple of weeks (actually it's the week after something I'm not looking forward to at all is happening, but then at the end of the week I'm going to see EDDIE IZZARD so that will make everything ok, and then I'll come back from London and reeeeeead all week. Excited)

Here's the info about the readathon from the Bout of Books website:

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 13th and runs through Sunday, May 19th 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 7.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team

And if you want to sign up for it (and why wouldn't you?) you can do that here.

Now that's done and I officially can't forget about it and then be annoyed all week because I forgot about it, I'm off to curl up in a corner/ try to absorb more information about the Ancient Greeks...


  1. Woooo! I'm so excited for B.o.B. :-) My May TBR pile is going to be MASSIVE because I know that B.o.B. is happening, lol.

  2. YAAAAAAY! I'm so excited that we're all going to be reading the crap out of another week together! Between the reading and the blog hopping and the challenges and the Twittery chats, it always seems to fly by and it's a great way to distract myself at work as well. WIN. ALL THE WIN. :D

  3. I am so excited for this!! Already trying to figure out which books to read and in which order. :)

  4. Hello,
    I saw that you were doing the Bout of Books read-a-thon. I've followed you to make sure I get your updates! I would really appreciate it if you could come over to my blog to check it out, and if you like it, you can follow me as well. I hope you'll follow my read-a-thon journey. I blog about my favourite music and books hence the name Music Plus Books.
    Thank you and good luck,
    Music Plus Books
