Bout-of-books 21

Yes, I said I would participate in more read-a-thons this year, so kicking off with Bout-of-books, a week long read-a-thon. For once I’m going to make an effort to join in the daily challenges too, and I’ve already started my TBR pile!

The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda Shofner and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, January 8th and runs through Sunday, January 14th 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 21 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team

Obviously like any other book lover I was given and also bought several books over the Christmas period, and I am saving these for the read-a-thon:


I’m not going to lie, that fact that the three that aren’t Charles Dickens will be very quick reads may have influenced my choices some what, as no matter what, managing to read more than one book during a read-a-thon can be a large task to a slow reader like me and this will help me feel more accomplished. I’m also hoping to find time to write a review for each one as this is something I don’t do enough of!

I’d love to hear what you’re planning on reading for Bout of Books and how you choose what to read?
