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!
