Yes! Another read-a-thon! I am new to this one, so I have included the little blurb from the host site just below.
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
My more reasonable goal is to finish two books I've started, but not progressed through very quickly (due to a busy schedule and distractions). The books are You are Not so Smart by David McRaney and Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald by Therese Anne Fowler. My ultimate goal is to also catch up on a devotional I've been reading titled Sparkling Gems from the Greek by Rick Renner. It is a set of 365 Greek word studies to sharpen understanding of the Bible. Gives you an idea of what has been lost in translation.
I can guarantee I'll be reading more than usual to accomplish this goal! Between my daughter's softball and putting up an above ground pool in our yard (among the usual busy schedule), we've had little downtime. I look forward to a reason to take it easy and enjoy doing what I do best: Read!
So if you're interested, check it out. If you can't, that's fine too. If you were to join any kind of read-a-thon, which books would top your list?
