Bout of Books Read-a-thon Saturday Update and Sunday's Challenge

Bout of Books

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, August 19th and runs through Sunday, August 25th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure, and the only reading competition is between you and your usual number of books read in a week. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 8.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog.

Challenge

There is only one challenge today, hosted by Little Lovely Books. It's basically a new blogger challenge. I just need to pick five bloggers that I found during Bout of Books. Here's my list:

The Happy Booker
I'll Tumble for YA
Bemused Bookworm
Unabridged Bookshelf
Kelsey's Cluttered Bookshelf

There were some others too, especially all the challenge hosts. :)

I would have to read three books on Sunday to meet my goal. It is possible depending on the books and such since we are pretty lazy on Sundays, especially if I have my husband cook dinner. Hmm. That might be a fabulous idea! :)
