What a readathon, eh? I am absolutely gutted that this readathon is over. I loved the premise, the execution, the thought, and the fact it was getting me to read new books and new genres. I hate the fact that I didn’t dedicate enough time to this readathon, that I didn’t complete as many challenges as I would like, and that it finished before it could even really get going.
Holidays are coming…Holidays are coming….I have holiday fever and I’m not afraid to let it show. I’ve had a difficult couple of months with one thing or another, and have been looking forward to this holiday for a little while now, so I’m glad it’s finally here!! And with a holiday comes time, enjoyment, excitement, and holiday reads. I am still taking part in #TheReadingQuest, so my holiday reads are to tie in with this. Or that’s the plan anyway!

Last week I signed up and started #TheReadingQuest (my sign up post can be found here). I committed to taking part in the readathon over the next month, and after a week have realised that I need a post to keep track of my progress! There is a set of rules, challenges, and scoring systems that can be found on #TheReadingQuest sign up post, and also on my original TBR post. So, in an effort to take part and track my progress, I’m creating a master post to track my scores throughout this readathon.
Afternoon one and all. It’s Friday, already, have you got that Friday feeling? What is the Friday feeling (I genuinely don’t really get it, maybe it’s because i work some weekends)? How is everyone? I’m back in work full time out of training now, and even though I’m still struggling with the after effects of the crash I feel more like myself. And these readathons (namely Tome Topple, #TheReadingQuest, and Bout of Books) are helping me along. Not being able to drive is annoying, yes, but it means I now sit waiting for and on trains for over an hour a day, so it has opened a nice guaranteed reading time for me to crack on with.
The sun is shining, the world is gleaming, because my favourite readathon is back! Bout of Books 20 is round the corner, and I am too excited, like ridiculously excited. Probably too excited. Bout of Books 20, wow, I can’t believe we’re hitting 20 already! What is it all about I hear you cry (into the wind)? Well, I’ve been made an expert on all things Bout of Books, so here’s the deal: It’s fun, friendly, low-key, and most of all, it’s all about you.
Bout of Books is a great online readathon, and community, and for the last week in August we’re picking up our books (whatever books you want to read) and reading them at your own pace (I mean it, whether you read a book a day, or a page a week), we’re chatting on twitter, and we’re having a laugh. C’mon, join us, you know you want to.
