Bout of Books 14 -- Count me in

Bout of Books I plan to join Bout of Books 14 next week. It starts on Monday morning and goes through the following Sunday—17-23 August. I'm just starting another of our famouse road-trips back to Texas. I've been in Orlando for a technical conference and we'll be drifting home over this next week. I just adore a road trip with lots of time to read.

Bout of Books is a very social event. Kelly and Amanda (the Bout of Books organizers) are fans of Twitter and they hold at least two Twitter chats during each Bout of Books. That's in addition to the twice daily announcements on Twitter. Don't believe me?
Check it out #boutofbooks.

If I've persuaded you to join us, you need to sign up. Just fill out the sign-up linky on the Bout of Books web site. While you're there, grab the image and spread the word, check out the challenges, and add the twitter chats to your calendar.

Never heard of Bout of Books? Well, the team that organizes it describes it this way:

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 17th and runs through Sunday, August 23rd 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 14 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog.
