Bout Of Books 8.0

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, 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

Thoughts: So today was the day after my son’s 4th birthday party (he has another one on the day of his actual birthday on the 25th) and I eneded up feeling HORRIBLE and went to sleep at 4:30 PM after watching Breaking Bad all day long! So all in all; today was an epic FAIL concerning Bout Of Books! OOPSIES!
