All in all, not a bad outcome aside from Friday. I read two books for Tome Topple, and one of those was for my #20for20books challenge. I didn’t participate in any of the mini-challenges or anything…I just wanted to read. I mainly stayed off social media, too, which is a major part of Bout of Books, but again, i just wanted to read.

If you participated, how did you do?

Bout of Books Readathon, May 2020

The Bout of Books readathon is organized by Amanda Shofner and Kelly Rubidoux Apple. It’s a weeklong readathon that begins 12:01am Monday, May 11th and runs through Sunday, May 17th in YOUR time zone. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are daily challenges, Twitter chats, and exclusive Instagram challenges, but they’re all completely optional. For Bout of Books 28 information and updates, visit the Bout of Books blog.

Another readathon to participate in, and it’s a week long!

I fully plan to participate in this, although I probably won’t be doing any of the daily challenges. I’m just going to read (which is what I’ve been doing already every week, so…).

I’m going to continue reading the books I listed in my May TBR and Library Book Haul posts, but I also need to read a book for my Drugs and Human Behavior class (Dopesick by Beth Macy), so I’ll most likely be reading that next week, too.

Are you joining the Bout of Books readathon? Will you have a TBR pile chosen ahead of time?
