I was only able to jump into the Bout of Books read-a-thon for the first part of the week, but really enjoyed my time to focus on reading for those few days (or two days as you’ll see below). I ended up reading 418 pages over the three days and finishing two books that I had lying around half-read.
Bout of Books is still going strong until Sunday, so if you want to join in for a few days, head on over to their blog or follow @boutofbooks on Twitter for new updates. You can also join in on a Twitter chat on Saturday at 10 AM CST. I joined up with a chat on Monday and it cah-razy awesome.

More about Bout of Books
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.
