Even though it feels like B.O.B. 19 just ended, somehow the next one is just around the corner! For newbies, here’s a rundown of the details:
“The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda Shofner and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, August 21st and runs through Sunday, August 27th 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 20 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team”
Last time, I concluded that five books might be too much. I thought hard about my TBR list for this readathon and picked out four books that I was excited for… and it ended up being more pages than what I read for #19! Grrr… I didn’t realize that The Book Thief was 550 pgs long. Guess I didn’t learn my lesson, and hope this doesn’t backfire on me.
My TBR list for BOB 20:
- Red Rising by Pierce Brown = 382 pgs
- Reincarnation Blues by Michael Poore = 371 pgs
- Serena by Ron Rash = 371 pgs
- The Book Thief by Markus Zusak = 550 pgs
For a total of 1674 pgs
During the week of the BOB 20, the readathon pretty much takes over my blog, as I participate in the daily challenges and document my progress. In my daily blog posts, I’ll also go into the books themselves and why I choose these four.
Anybody else joining the madness? 😉
