My 'post' for the "Bout of Books" Read-A-Thon '12' January 5th to January 11th, 2015!

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, January 5th and runs through Sunday, January 11th 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 12 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team

I am looking forward to ONLY reading books after the holidays! No more Christmas advertising - DONE! No more TONS OF MAIL! DONE! No more holiday things - done! January is a GREAT month to snuggle down and read! Heck, where I live you can't really get out easily anyway because of all the snow! So go on over and sign up! These are FUN! Especially the Challenges, Giveaways and a GRAND PRIZE, too! The BEST is getting to meet other Bloggers! That is MY favorite thing to do!

I have participated in this one other time, so this is my 2nd time around! Can't wait! These ARE FUN!

January 5th starts it all!

    1. Hi Maji!
      It kind of IS the first week of January. It runs from 1-5 to 1-11. Or I should say Bout of Books 12 Read-A-Thon starts in the first week of January, but it does go into the 2nd week.
      The timing works out well for a LOT of people because most everyone doesn't return to work OR school until January 5th. That is why they are starting it on the 5th. Kids and husband's are home! LOL!!! I know many women work, too, so maybe that is getting in your way?
      I sure wish you could join us, still! Remember - it is a NO PRESSURE Read-A-Thon! You just read like you normally do. It's the Challenges you want to focus on and visiting other blogs! That's the FUN part! Making NEW friends!
      BEST wishes in that you do get to join!
      All the best!
      Happy Holidays!

  2. That is a great challenge!! I may have to sign up for that one. :)
