GIVEAWAY

Bout of Books 10

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, May 12th and runs through Sunday, May 18th 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 10 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team

Time Devoted to Reading

Pauline: Yay! Since it's summer here in the Philippines, I get to read books all day long! So yep, I think I'll read everyday, and finish as much books as I can!

Dyane: I'll read whenever I find the time to, which is probably most days, since I usually just lie around the house like a pig, haha!

Goals

Pauline
• Read a book everyday.
• Finish 3-5 books.
• Review all books read.

Dyane
• Recover from my reading slump.
• Read books that I've been planning to read for a long time but never really got around to

Wrap Up ;)

Pauline
Yay! I may not have finished my 5 books, but I'm still so glad. This is actually more than what I usually read a week, and I got to read everyday! Well, except for the Monday because I was still having a book hangover on Maybe Someday. Having read 1279 pages certainly helped a lot to my 500 Thousand Pages goal. I was also able to write reviews on almost all the books I read, aside from Just One Year. I just don't know what to write there. :o

I really felt more productive and win-win situation this Bout of Books than the previous ones I joined! :D Not to mention, it's my first time that I entered some awesome challenges. I wanted to join the Twitter chats, but somehow they never match with the time here in the Philippines. (I CRY.) But hopefully by next Bout of Books I'll be able to interact with the other readers! Hurrah! ;)

Dyane
Oookay! As I hoped, Bout of Books kind of did get me off my reading slump! Even though I only finished about a book and a half, I think I already got the push to start reading again, all thanks to this challenge. Now I'm off to make the most of the few remaining weeks of summer vacation! :)

I love readathons-heading over to the host blog to sign up!

Pauline said...

Yeah! Me too. It motivates me to read more books, haha :D

Charleen Lynette said...

Bout of Books is the perfect way to bust a reading slump! With so many people reading and shouting about books, it's impossible not to catch the enthusiasm! Good luck!

Hannah Harvey said...

Those are some great goals for both of you. I hope you manage to get over your reading slump. They're the worst.
Bout of Books should definitely help. Read-a-thons always help me when I'm in a slump.

Dyane said...

Thanks! I hope it'll be able to help me too! Maybe then I can start tackling my growing TBR pile again, haha!

Dyane said...

Yeah, I know right? Hopefully I'll be more motivated to read again after this! :)

OH MY GOSH YOUR POST IS SO PRETTY, BYE! AHAHAH
I'm so excited to be joining this read-a-thon, I always only find out about it too later the other times but not now, and it couldn't have come in a more perfect time!
