Bout of Books 19 | Sign-up & progress post.

Bout of Books
Yesterday I realized I have participated in 7 editions of Bout of Books already, so I also signed up to be an Expert. This means you really commit to spread some love on accounts of participants. I always enjoy hopping around, but I haven't felt really like it lately, so I hope this will give me some extra motivation. Let's see if I can make it on the team.

Edit May 2nd: accepted!

I will be away for the weekend though and I will mostly participate through Twitter, but I still wanted to make an official blog post where I can keep track of my progress. My aim is to read 3 to 4 books, but my main goal is to simply read as much as I can/want.

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, May 8th and runs through Sunday, May 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 19 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team.
