loveathon2015

Thoughts:

So I saw this like an hour ago and decided to quickly write up a post because this looked like a fun thing to do. I actually won’t be able to fully participate today because I’m doing groomsman/bachelor party stuff all day.

What is it?
The Book Blogger Love-A-Thon is hosted by Alexa Loves Books and is a two day event to spread the love of blogs and blogging within the community. It runs from Feb 21-22, 2015 from 9am-9pm EST

[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.

BoB11-200x200The 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, Aug 18th and runs through Sunday, Aug 24th 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 11 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. 


Initial Thoughts:

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

Read-a-thon Goals: Two books to be determined as I go because I really don’t know what I’m reading (I’m so wishy-washy).

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.
