  1. Yep. No stress is the best way to approach Bout of Books. Heck, life gives us enough stress we shouldn't pile more on with our hobbies and entertainment. Let's try to encourage each other to have fun as we're reading during Bout of Books.

  2. I hope that this Bout of Books will pull you out of your slump. Maybe you can turn it into a family activity, too.

    But not stressing is definitely key. It takes all the fun out of it.

  4. Not to stress is definitely the most important thing. I think that's why I really enjoyed this readathon last time because there are no set goals.
