Nothing like waiting to the last minute to decide, but I’m joining the Bout of Books readathon from January 3rd to 9th. I’ve been toying with the idea of participating for about a month now. Since school doesn’t start again until January 10th, I decided that Bout of Books would be a great way to jump start my reading for 2022.
For those of you who don’t know what Bout of Books is, here’s the official blurb from the Bout of Books blog:
The Bout of Books readathon is organized by Amanda Shofner and Kelly Rubidoux Apple. It’s a weeklong readathon that begins 12:01am Monday, January 3rd and runs through Sunday, January 9th in YOUR time zone. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are reading sprints, Twitter chats, and exclusive Instagram challenges, but they’re all completely optional. For all Bout of Books 33 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog.– From the Bout of Books team
I’m hoping that I’ll be able to read my Unofficial Trim Challenge book, ANXIOUS PEOPLE by Frederik Backman, and start my IRL book club book, KEEP MOVING: NOTES ON LOSS, CREATIVITY, AND CHANGE by Maggie Smith. I may read some of my January PBT book as well, HOW TO: ABSURD SCIENTIFIC ADVICE FOR COMMON REAL-WORLD PROBLEMS by Randall Munroe.
Are you going to join in the fun? What are you planning to read?
