The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organised 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 11th and runs through Sunday, May 17th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, giveaways and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 13 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog.

For me it seems like such a long time since I participated in a read-a-thon, it's been at least a year I think. Life as usual gets in the way. But it is that time again and I'm going to run with it. I'm participating, but I'll be going low key, I'm going to read what I can and participate in challenges and chats when I have time. I've got an assignment due in two weeks, so I need to spend time on that and Library & Information Week is coming up at work, so I'm busy with that as well. If anyone has spare minions lying around - I could use a couple!
I'm not quite sure what I'll be reading yet, I've got a couple of e-audio's on hold from the library, but I don't know if they'll come in on time and I've got a stack of graphic novels which I'll no doubt tuck into. They are perfect for when you don't have a lot of time or need a quick pallet cleanser. I also have a new volume of J.M. Coetzee's short stories, which I've been wanting to read since I got it at Christmas. I'd also really like to finish the three books that I've been currently reading for what seems like forever. Half Bad, Gone Girl and The Year of Living Biblically. And lastly, the other definite is The Skeleton Road which is the Just a Lil' Bookclub pick for this month.
Are you participating? Let me know if you are and I'll come cheer you on!
Until next time, happy reading :)
