I've been gone a while. I started reading fanfiction to escape and I got sucked in an abyss.

I have no idea if someone else is hosting similar challenges. I just grabbed some of what I have hosted before.

Here's to a happy year of great reading
Jan2023: Not much has changed. Writing a fanfiction now O_o as well as reading but I bought 7 new books in December and hope to get those read soon. Crossing fingers about adding challenges (late!)

Bout of Books Read-a-Thon

Bout of Books
Bout of Books
May 8 - May 14

For more information or to sign up, click here

Link up to any social media as long as a direct link is possible.


This is a midnight to midnight challenge, in what ever time zone you're in. It's very low key, just push yourself to read more than you might on another week.

There will be Twitter chats. Use the sign up links to visit others. Or don't ;-)

The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda Shofner 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

I've got a huge tbr pile and a backlog of books I need to review. I'm also hosting a party at the end of the month and my house (as usual) isn't ready. What's not usual, I'm still got a lot of my Mom's stuff in our family room so I've got to find a place for it (storage/family/donate) :-(
