Bout of Books 10: Sign-up Post

Bout of Books 10It’s time for another installment of the Bout of Books week-long read-a-thon! Starting Monday, May 12,  and running through Sunday, May 18, participants push themselves to get in more reading than they usually would. Here’s the official announcement:

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 12th and runs through Sunday, May 18th 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 10 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team”

This will be my second time participating in BoB.  Last time, a flu bug struck me down just a couple of days in.  (Perhaps I took the official button picture a bit too literally!)  Hopefully this time I’ll avoid such a derailment.  I wasn’t sure if I was going to be able to participate in the event this time, as I wasn’t certain how much I would be around during the week in question.  But it’s looking as if I will have extra reading time after all, so I’ve decided to jump in.

I enjoy this read-a-thon event because it’s more relaxed than the 24-hour marathon read-a-thons.  I love those events, too, but I need ages to recuperate after each one…so I appreciate the next event in line being a less intense, longer-term one.

I’ll have my Goals post up tomorrow.  I am really looking forward to the community chatter and minigames and am excited to see what all the other participants will be reading for the event!
