It's time for Bout of Books 8.0! This is my 3rd time participating.
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, August 19th and runs through Sunday, August 25th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure, and the only reading competition is between you and your usual number of books read in a week. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 8.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team

Once again, big thank you to my bloggy BFF Janie over at Fortune Favors for introducing me to Bout of Books, and the concept of online read-a-thons in general. I've really loved participating in these and it gives me a great excuse to catch up on my reading.
Have you ever participated in a read-a-thon before?
There's still time to sign up! :)
