Bout of Books 18 | Sign Up

Hello there, long time no talk. It's been a bit of a hectic few months, as every time I post here I say, but it might be evening out once 2017 starts. I'm not sure how well my participating in the beginning of this readathon will be, mostly because I'm having apartment guests for New Years (I want it to just be then so much, I miss my friends, and there will be four of us in the same place!!).

Anyway - Bout of Books. You guys all know it's my favorite readathon, Amanda and Kelly are awesome, and if you're interested in participating here's the little quote (with the blog link to sign up)
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, January 2nd and runs through Sunday, January 8th 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 18 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team
I don't think I'll end up posting a TBR or anything, though since I realized how close it was I've been mentally adding things to the list. Like: I need to finish Words of Radiance, I'm dying to, but also want to get a head start on 2017 by knocking out a good few books so we'll see which wins out.

If you're participating let me know, with a link to your blog/twitter. (the twitter chats for this readathon are the best) Hope you all had a good Holiday season, I'm personally kind of relieved it's over, and hopefully a fantastic New Year (2017, be better).

    1. They're quieted down a bit because there are no longer 2-3 people in my studio apartment, but still more stuff to do then I'd like. I hope you have a great reading week!
