A Bout of Books Begins!!

I have had a bout of anger . . .

I have had a bout of frustration . . .

I have had a bout of depression . . .

I have even had a bout of Influenza A . . .

But what is a Bout of Books you say?

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 12th and runs through Sunday, May 18th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure, and the only reading competition is between you and your usual number of books read in a week. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 10 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team
As mentioned in my original post I have signed up for a couple of book challenges for the summer - I'm already going with one that lasts for the entire summer - but today I cheerfully start the week signed up with Amanda and Kelly on a week long book challenge.  The rules are low key - you challenge yourself to read more than normal - and since I have been having a hard time getting any reading done - I chose to read one book this week for the readathon!  I will be reading Snow Melts in Spring by Deborah Vogts.  This book is a selection for the book club that I am in with my sister ... uh yes . . . we are the book club . . . the two of us :)     It takes place in the Flint Hills of Kansas and so it has a special intrigue to both of us!   The young star of the story is a veterinarian who cares for horses - especially one she rescues and saves after a terrible car accident.  I'm also eager for a read about horses as I have been thinking that I wanted to learn more about them and not be so afraid of them.  

Really appreciate these two young gals sponsoring this readathon - and I'll be back at the end of the week to tell you about my experience !

Happy Reading this week!


  1. Hope you enjoy the book and the fun of Bout of Books. Thanks for talking me into joining.

  2. A bout of books sounds great. I'm sure it will require pot after pot of tea and perhaps chocolate every so often amid all that page turning.


Thanks for leaving a comment! I appreciate hearing from all of you! It is an honor!
