Bout of Books 15.0 – Updates

Bout of Books

Let’s get Bout of Book-ing! This readathon is week long feast for reading. Each participant can make their own rules, which means you can either try to really challenge yourself or just to see how much you can read in a week. I tend to prefer the latter, so my goal for this challenge is only to read every day – simple, but effective. Going into the challenge, I’m currently reading A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara, which I’ve been reading since the end of December. I’m not sure if I can finish the entire 800+ book during the week (I hope so), but I’ll probably intersperse A Little Life with a couple shorter books from my January TBR. However, last year I read most of The Name of the Rose during Bout of Books without any problems, so I don’t think it’ll be any different this year.

    • Thanks 🙂 The heartbreak is real, so I’m currently looking through my TBR pile in hopes of finding something more uplifting. Anything remotely sad is too much at this point.
