Bout of Books is back! And perfect timing too because I’m sick. (This is the only time I’ll be excited about being ill.)
Bout of Books is the only readathon I’ve consistently participated in each year. I don’t know what it is about this readathon that makes me commit to it, but I usually read whatever books I assign myself for it. As usual, I won’t participate in challenges because I don’t have time for them and I’ll probably forget to.
The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda at On a Book Bender and Kelly at Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01 a.m. Monday, May 8, and runs through 11:59 p.m. Sunday, May 14, 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 19 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. — From the Bout of Books team

This looks like a lot. But I’m assuming here that because the majority of them are comics/graphic novels, I’ll get through them quickly and complete them all. We’ll see what happens, though.
