Bout of Books 17 Announcement & TBR

I haven’t really heard of anyone talking about this readathon yet, for this year, but I’ve been looking forward to it! I was hoping to get some good reading done during this week, but now we are actually going on holiday, so I may still get to get some read on the long drive there and back, so will see how I do!

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 22nd and runs through Sunday, August 28th 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 17 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team

I am now realizing that, during this readathon, for a majority of the week, we will be on vacation. So I am not going to be doing a daunting a TBR, as I don’t know how much reading I will get done. As of now, I’m only going to TBR 2 books….and that’s for *just in case* I get one completed, but I don’t think I’ll even get to more than 1 book.


I’m also really only picking books from my #ReadThemAllThon TBR, so that my books can do double duty and count for both readathons. I also probably will not be able to do much on the challenge front, for this readathon. Will have to see what the challenges all entail, and how much time in the evenings we will have available, but I am not going to stress over those this time. Kind of sucks, as these challenges are usually my favorite of all readathons!
