Bout of Books Signup

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.

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?

    Hi:
    Thank you for stopping by my place. I was also debating to sign up for #boutofbooks but since I had an awful 2021 of reading I plan to try and join as many read-a-thons as I can so that maybe it will hold me accountable and end the major slump I have been in. I also purchased an app that I enjoy using, Bookly, which will remind me that I haven’t read in a certain amount of days 🙂
    Good luck!!! I will be stopping back to see how you are doing with the Read-A-Thon!
    Fingers crossed that we start 2022 with #boutofbooks and it will jump start our reading!!!!!!

    I’ve participated in Bob every year since it started and this one still snuck up on me. Hope BoB is just the thing you need to jumpstart your 2022 reading goals! Thanks for stopping by Creative Deeds Reads. 😉
