Dewey’s 24-hour read-a-thon takes place this weekend and, as I’ve mentioned before, I’m hoping it will help me put a dint in Mt TBR and my reading for the Hugo Awards. But I know I need all the help I can get. Therefore I’m planning to follow it up by participating in round 19 of Bout of Books.

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 8th and runs through Sunday, May 14th 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 19 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog.– From the Bout of Books team

Being a low-pressure challenge, Bout of Books lets me set my own goals. As with last few times, I’m aiming to get through a minimum of three books. I’m not entirely sure yet what I’ll end up going with, but there’s plenty to pick from. At the moment, I’m leaning towards Jen Wilde’s Queens of Geek and S.C. Flynn’s Children of the Different. And there’s still reading to be done for the Hugos and the Ditmars.

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

What’s on your TBR pile this week?

    I might try and use Bout of Books to put a dint in my Mt TBR, and also the Book Riot Read Harder and Around the Year in 52 books challenges. Enjoy the Dewey 24hr Readathon too, I forgot that was on again so soon!

      Thank you! I had a great time with Dewey’s. However, it’s also nice to have Bout of Books to follow up with. I need all the help I can get with my Mt TBR!

    I’m aiming to get through at least one book. I know this is low compared to everyone else but I haven’t read a book since my daughter was born!

      One of the things I enjoy about Bout of Books is it lets participants decide what’s reasonable for their circumstances. Motherhood brings extra challenge to reading, so one book seems like a sensible goal to me!
