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

Reading Pile:


The Supernatural Enhancements by Edgar Cantero 

Hopefully I'll finish at least two of these books and participate in a couple of challenges as well.

To all Bout of Books participants, happy reading!

Good job with the challenge. It's hard to find titles that start with J and I (trust me, I know. :) Enjoy the rest of your read-a-thon!

Thank you! Yeah, J especially is a tough one. Luckily I was just rearranging my books and had seen the Jonathan Strange title recently. Enjoy your read-a-thon!
