April put a considerable dent in Mt TBR, but there’s plenty of work still to be done. And the best way to keep up my motivation is a reading challenge, of course!

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 9th and runs through Sunday, May 15th 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 16 information and updates, be sure to visit theBout of Booksblog.– From the Bout of Books team

Being a low-pressure challenge, Bout of Books lets me set my own goals. As I have mentioned before, I overcommitted on review books for May. So I’d like to get through a minimum of three books.Carpentaria(pictured above) by Alexis Wright is definitely on the list along with The Crying Child by Becca Lusher and Penric’s Demon by Lois McMaster Bujold. If I manage all of those, I’d like to get back to my reread of Ursula Le Guin’sThe Earthsea Quartet.

If you’d like to join in, there’s still time to sign up!

What’s on your TBR pile this week?

  1. I wouldn’t mind joining in for this. I could use some kick-starting to my reading. It has been quiet lately.

    1. Please do! The more, the merrier.

      I could use a bit of a kick-start, too. I finally had to DNF a book I really wasn’t enjoying and I haven’t quite got back to reading after that.

    1. Thanks! It’s going slower than I’d like but I’m sticking with it. How about you?
