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 18th and runs through Sunday, August 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. - From the Bout of Books team
I hope to either finish all of these or at least read quite a bit of them. I have already started reading all of them, except for Germinal but will start this week. Here are the books that I hope to complete during the Bout of Books week:
This is for a book club I belong to, and is the choice for us to read this month.
This is for the Austen in August challenge.
This is for the Classics Club Spin
I am reading this for the publisher, and am almost halfway done.
