The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda Shofner and Kelly Rubidoux Apple. 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. There are challenges, Twitter chats, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 26 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog.

I went back to work yesterday, even though I wasn’t sure if I would make it through the whole day. However, I also got a chair massage in the afternoon, and was feeling so much better afterward that I walked up the street to a bookstore that is attached to a Peet’s and bought a book, Strange Magic by Syd Moor, and a Hibiscus Tea Fog (so yummy!). I had intended on only reading a couple of pages on my bus ride home, but I got sucked in, and now I’m 64 pages in and on chapter five.
