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, January 6th and runs through Sunday, January 12th 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 9.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team
On January 4, 2014 I will be doing the Classics Club readathon and I anticipate a Bout of Books the week of January 6, 2014.
My plan is to read as much as possible that week and check out the other participant's blogs as well. I won't be able to participate in Monday's twitter chat (I will be at work), but the Wednesday and Saturday ones should be do-able. There are several interesting sounding events scheduled which I will try to check out.
