Oh my gosh! I can’t believe it’s time for Bout of Books 20. I participated for the first time in May and wasn’t as successful as I wanted to be, but that’s behind me now.
Bout of Books is a one-week read-a-thon beginning Monday, August 21st at 12:01 am (your time zone) and ending Sunday, August 27th. And the best part is it’s low-pressure. There are challenges (optional), giveaways, and a grand prize.
Bout of Books is organized by Amanda Shofner and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. For all Bout of Books 20 information, updates and of course to sign up and join in the fun visit the Bout of Books blog.
If you remember, I had you guys and dolls vote on what books I’d read for the month of August and my plan for Bout of Books is to read 2 or 3 books.
Well, you all decided on Viet Thanh Nguyen’s The Sympathizer. I’ll also be reading Oscar Wilde’s The Picture of Dorian Gray for a book club meeting the following week and American Street by Ibi Zoboi because it was finally available for check out at the library. There’s a major waitlist for this book, so fingers crossed 🤞 it lives up to the demand.
