Bout of Books 12

Bout of Books

It's that time again! Bout of Books 12 is coming up in just over a week. If you like to read and talk about what you're reading, join me in Bout of Book 12. You need to sign up by midnight CDT on Tuesday, 6 January.

What is Bout of Books? Well, the sponsors provide this explanation:

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, January 5th and runs through Sunday, January 11th 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 12 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog.  - From the Bout of Books team

With Bout of Books 12 starting on the Monday morning that I return to work, I'm hoping that I'm not overwhelmed with stuff that's piled up while I was enjoying this lengthy end-of-year vacation.

If you've followed my blog for any time, you'll note that I participate in a number of read-a-thons. Bout of Books is one of my favorites because of the mix of social media—particularly Twitter—in the usual reading and visiting the sites of other readers. Even when I have to be away from my computer (as when the read-a-thon is taking place during one of my cross-country road trips), I can post status updates on Twitter and check in on how my reading friends are progressing.
