Bout of Books Sign Up and Master Post

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 9th and runs through Sunday, May 15th 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 16 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team
Bout of books is one of my favorite things during the year! But then I really love anything that gives me an excuse to read. I will be posting all my reading lists and general updates here. 

The Book Pile

Top to bottom:
Blue Lily, Lily Blue (Raven cycle #3) By Maggie Stiefvater
The Nightengale by Kristin Hannah
The Great Glass Sea by Josh Weil
Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin
Watchman by Alan Moore
The Sandman Vol. 1: Preludes & Nocturnes by Neil Gaiman
The Sandman Vol. 2: The Doll's House by Neil Gaiman

Granted there is no way I will get through all that in a week, though I would be so proud if I did. When it comes to readathons, I like having a huge list to pull from, and this pile is all the books I want to read/reread at the moment. I think I have a good chance of sticking to the pile this time and I'm usually notorious for deviating from it.

Goals:

  • Stick to the pile
  • Read 1000 pages
  • Participate in at least one chat
  • Not stay up super late reading
  • Possibly participate in challenges
