Bout of Books 21 Wrap-Up

That’s it! Another Bout of Books has come and gone. I hope you had just as much fun as I did.

I had a great time being an expert. I really enjoyed cheering everyone on. As you all know, Bout of Books isn’t just about getting a ton of reading done, but it’s about having fun while doing it and socializing with the other participants is the perfect way to do that. Being an expert sure allowed me to do that!

Thank you, Amanda and Kelly, for all the work you put into making Bout of Books as huge of a success as it is! Don’t forget that the next Bout of Books is May 14 to May 20.

Bout of Books 21 Progress

 

Bout of Books 21 has officially begun! I hope you’re participating. If you haven’t signed up, there’s still time. Just hop on over to the official blog.

I’m an expert this time around so I’ll be making my way around the Interwebs to say hello and cheering everyone on throughout the week. Also, if you have any questions, feel free to ask. 😊

Goals

This week, I want to finish at least one book and start another, visit every participants’ signup post, and comment on anyone’s blog who has commented on mine. Other than that, I’m not going stress too much and just have fun.

I’ll keep track of my progress on this post throughout the week. At the end of the week, I’ll post a wrap-up post with my totals. Let’s make this a great week!
