Joining the Bout of Books 8.0 Read-a-thon
August 11, 2013 16 Comments
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 19th and runs through Sunday, August 25th 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. For all Bout of Books 8.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team
This will my second time joining the Bout of Books read-a-thon. It’s a week-long read-a-thon, running from Monday August 19th 12.01 in the morning, to Sunday, August 25th at night.
I only did a readathon a few weeks ago, which lasted for 6 days. I read 4.5 books in those 6 days, so for this readathon, I’ll try 5 books.
A Beautiful Truth by Colin McAdam
The Donor by Helen Fitzgerald
Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green & David Levithan
Solar by Ian McEwan
Vanwege een tere huid [Because of Tender Skin, Dutch] by Anton Koolhaas
That is a nice, mixed list. There’s a thriller, a YA book, some literary fiction. Three books in English and two in Dutch (I’ve got a Dutch translation of The Donor). Looking forward to reading these!
