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, May 13th and runs through Sunday, May 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 7.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team
Alrighty! It’s been a while since I’ve done a readathon, so I’m again participating in Bout of Books.
I’ll update with my goals tomorrow, as I haven’t yet figured out what they’ll be. Lots of reading and writing reviews, of course! I want to visit other participants as well, and maybe find some new blogging buddies. Tonight I plan to have one long night of Warcraft, and then I’ll devote the upcoming week to reading and getting ahead.

As you can see, I have a LOT of reviews I need to write. I doubt I’ll get to all of them, but having yet another list is a good reminder that I need to get better about taking notes as I read! I’ve been trying to do this, because it helps, but sometimes I get through a book way too quickly or I’m too into it to take notes.
I’m also trying to give myself some variety with the books I need to read next, so we’ll see what I actually pick up to read.
Lastly, I want to get around to some of the other participating blogs and maybe make some new blogging friends. I’m also going to attempt to be more active on Twitter while reading. We’ll see!
