Bout of Books 16 | May 9th - 15th (sign up)

It is May, which means it's time for another Bout of Books. Definitely my favorite weeklong readathon. (Possibly my favorite ever, but I've pretty fond of Dewey's, too). To explain to you what this readathon is, here's a blurb from the team:

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 9th and runs through Sunday, May 15th 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 16 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog
                                    - From the Bout of Books team

That's mostly all the information you need to know: low pressure, readathon, weeklong. What isn't included in that blurb is the best part of this readathon: the community. The twitter chats - and the general social media interactions during the week - is my favorite part of these readathons. Everyone is just plain awesome, and loves books as much as you do.

This is just my sign up post so I'll keep it short and week - but I'll be posting a kick off post with goals / TBR probably the day before it starts. And probably just add my updates to that post - I've done that before, and then done a different post every day, still not sure which one I like better.

Let me know if you'll be participating! And happy reading.
