Dog Days of Summer and Bout of Books 8.0...Read-a-Thons, Baby!

The Dog Days of Summer Read-a-Thon is hosted by The Estella Society. It's 48 hours starting tomorrow and runs for 48 hours. Official start time is 8:00am EST so that makes it 7:00am CST my time. We'll see if I can get up that early. I do have some plans tomorrow....haircut, going to see Elysium with mom, etc....but once I get home it's reading time! Here's what I want to read:

-The Tudor Conspiracy,C.W. Gortner
-The Talisman, Stephen King
-Under the Dome, Stephen King
-City of Bones, Cassandra Clare

I realize I won't be able to read them all, but looky here...another read-a-thon...

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. - From the Bout of Books team
I'll post my official goal list on Sunday!

Yay for read-a-thons!!!

Thank you for visiting and taking the time to comment. It means so much.

I apologize for word verification, but as soon as I changed the settings from only users with Google accounts, I started receiving a ton of spam comments...within one hour of changing the settings. The bots are on high alert apparently.

  1. Oh silly me - I didn't even notice until just now that we could go straight from one readathon to another!

  2. I'm doing both of them as well!! Good luck with your reading this weekend!! And, let me know what you think about Elysium! I'm so intrigued by that one!!
