[Miscellaneous] – Bout Of Books 11

Miscellaneous is the tagline to store my random posts that don’t really belong elsewhere. It’s more for consistency sake so I can have an itty-bitty picture to follow suit with the post.

Initial Thoughts:

This post is devoted to my on-going updates to track my progress during the read-a-thon going forward.

What Is It?

Bout of Books is a low-pressure read-a-thon which runs from Aug 18th-24th in whatever time zone you live in.

The Sales Pitch

Usually read one novel a week? Challenge yourself to more.
Fancy the sports column in your local newspaper? Try reading arts for a change.
Interested in other genres and types of reads (i.e. comics)? Here’s an excuse to throw monies away (or you could borrow, I guess).
Already participating in a read-a-thon/read-a-long? Kill two endeavours with one book.

The content of this intro-post is basically the same as last time. If you do any form of reading, you’re basically participating…so just take an extra few minutes and sign up via twitter or a blog post—head over to the site for the deets. While the focus of this read-a-thon is to, you know, read books, you can certainly create value through reading other mediums as well.

Always: experience, think, and learn.
