Here's a quick blurb from the Bout of Books website with more information on this readathon:
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 18th and runs through Sunday, August 24th 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 11 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team
I am still a few days away from the start of this event, so I am guessing on what my first read of the week will be. With that in mind, here is my current list of goals for the week . . .
Last, but not least, I am hoping to get a good 10 hours of listening in on my current audiobook, Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriela Garcia Marquez . I am listening to this one for a book club read, and I'm hoping that I am able to renew it before someone else grabs it!
If I can read more, I will ... but I am trying to be realistic here. To stay up-to-date on my progress throughout the week, follow me on Twitter, Instagram, and Tumblr. I will only be posting updates via social media and will do a full wrap-up in my weekly wrap-up post once the event has completed.
Will you be participating in the readathon? If so, what are your hopes and goals? (Please feel free to share your links with me.)
