My first Read-a-thon! Bout of Books

During the #LITHW15 Twitter chat and Leigh mentioned read-a-thons. I had never done one before and she told me Bout of Books was coming up. So I’ve decided to join.

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. – From the Bout of Books team

So in one week, I am going to try to do the following:

Read three books
Read one ARC
Tweet three times a day
One review
One other post

The great thing about this read-a-thon is that I am not making myself read any specific books (except my ARC).
My plan as of right now is to read Galapagos and Your Voice is All I Hear along with one other book, I have yet to decide what that will be. That’s bout a book every two days. I just read a book in two days and  the ones I’ve chosen are about the same size. However, one is by Kurt Vonnegut. For some reason I’m thinking that is going to be a harder book to get through. I’m going to try though!!
