It’s a week long read-a-thon that begins at 12:01am on Monday, May 11th and runs through Sunday, May 17th in whatever timezone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional.

NotesI had a terrific reading day today! I finished one book, Tiny’s book is a play. Then I started Connor’s book and flew to page 100, that was my goal at the end of the day for that book. Then, I only have 110 to go! Hoping to finish it for Day 2. Short books are key in readathons I now know. Having a lot of fun!!

  1. Good to hear you had such a great first day! Would you say the play is worth reading? I need one for my Bookish Bingo challenge and I haven’t found anything interesting yet.
