I've decided to go ahead and join the Bout of Books Read-a-Thon hosted by Amanda at "On a Book Bender".
Here are the guidelines.
-It is a week long read-a-thon, usually from 12:01am on a Monday through 11:59pm on a Sunday in whatever time zone you are in.
-Bout of Books is low pressure, meaning participants are only asked to push themselves to read more than they normally would during any given week.
-There is no competition between readers.
-How much time a reader wants, and can commit, to read, tweet, or network with fellow bloggers is left to individual preference. All challenges and giveaways are optional.
-Networking with fellow bloggers is actively encouraged, though never required. Co-hosts are there to facilitate blog hopping and interaction between participants.
-Use Twitter to post updates throughout the read-a-thon. Everyone will be tweeting with the #boutofbooks hashtag.
I usually read at least 2 books a week but sometimes as much as 4. So my goal is to try to read 5 books this week!
