The Bout of Books readathon is organized by Amanda Shofner and Kelly Rubidoux Apple. It’s a weeklong readathon that begins at 12:01 am Monday, August 16th, and runs through Sunday, August 22nd in YOUR time zone. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are reading sprints, Twitter chats, and exclusive Instagram challenges, but they’re all completely optional. For all Bout of Books 32 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team
While I didn’t finish Cannonbridge by Jonathan Barnes, I only have about 65 pages left. I also did some #audiocleaning in my office while listening to some of The Cuckoo’s Cry by Caroline Overington.
Overall, this Bout of Books went better than the last. I got through more pages, read for a longer amount of time, and finished more books. I more than met my goal for this readathon, and I’m well on my way to catching up to my annual reading goal of 90 books. I’m looking forward to the next Bout of Books, in January, but until then, #RIP is right around the corner, and then another Dewey’s 24-Hour #Readathon in October.
