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 13th and runs through Sunday, August 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. For all Bout of Books 5.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog.

I participated in Bout of Books 4.0 and loved it! I have been in a bit of reading slump, and haven’t had a lot of time to read this summer, so I’m excited to get back into reading. I'm also excited to network, and participate in the Twitter chats again :)
Books to Read
I’m not going to hold myself to the books I chose like last time, especially since I’m still in a bit of a reading slump. However, these are some books I hope to read.
I’m hoping I can get 4-5 read but I’m also running around and working on study abroad preparations and Thursday is actually my 22nd birthday, so we shall see how well I can stick to my goals, haha!
