Read-a-thon: Bout of Books 13.0 & #CrushyourTBR Sign Up & Updates

Bout of Books
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 11th and runs through Sunday, May 17th 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 13 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog

Monthly 3-day read-a-thon co-hosted by @jacquelynreads and @raeleenlemay 
Next event: May 15-17 @ 12 AM your time!

This is a little last minute but I decided to take part in The Bout of Books read-a-thon that is supposedly starting today at 12AM but I completely missed it since I don't have my laptop with me and was pretty much out of the loop. (I am currently using my brother's desktop) So since I missed the starting local time, I will be taking part in the read-a-thon following CST. Also, #crushyourtbr coincides with bout of books during the weekend so I decided to take part in that as well! I do have a wedding to attend on Sunday though so I may not be able to actually crush anything...

This post will function as my sign-up and daily updates post! You can also follow me on Twitter for live updates. :)


1. Listen/Read a least 2-3 hours everyday.
2. Listen/Read at least 4 full-length books.
3. Participate in at least one of the Twitter chats (most likely the one on Saturday)
4. Take part in at lest 2 of the daily challenges


Obviously I won't be finishing all these but I am hoping that I will stick with these few books for the read-a-thons. :) I have already started on Gone Girl (audiobook) and Crewel so so far so good!
