Bout of Books 17

Bout of Books

That’s right, another Bout of Books is right around the corner!  Starting Monday, August 22nd (next Monday!).

The description (taken from the official site):
“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”

Bout of Books 17 will be my fourth go-round, which means I’m feeling pretty confident that I’ve got the whole thing down.  Not that it’s that hard – you just read as much as you can and post your progress, linking back to the daily linkup.  So if you’re feeling like it, come sign up and join in!

I’m hoping that BoB17 will see me through to almost the end of COYER (another reading challenge I’m doing, information found here), with a few more books finished and reviewed, even though I’ve met my goal of 20 books read for COYER.

My official plans for BoB17 are to read:
1. at least one chapter of Orb Sceptre Throne by Ian C. Esslemont per day
2. start and finish at least three other books
3. finish any other books I’m in the middle of when the week starts

Pretty ambitious, but I’m feeling strangely up to it, especially since this tech is thankfully this week, not next.

Anyone feeling like joining in?
