Bout Of Books #20 Sign-Up

Hey Readers,

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:

  1. Red Rising by Pierce Brown = 382 pgs
  2. Reincarnation Blues by Michael Poore = 371 pgs
  3. Serena by Ron Rash = 371 pgs
  4. 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? 😉

  1. I was thinking about joining, but I’m already doing ARC August, Read-a-thin and Make Me Read It.. Four is probably a bit too much.. Adding that it’s the week before I leave on road trip, timing isn’t great either, haha.
    I’ll be keeping a watch on #21, though! If that one fits my schedule better, I’ll definitely go for it!

    Enjoy and have fun! ^-^

  2. I’ve not heard of any of the books you’re reading for the challenge, but it seems you’ll be busy with those page counts. I think I’m going to have to sign up as well to knock off some tomes from my TBR!
