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.

For this round, with a wedding to plan and a new house we're still chipping away at setting up, I'm going to go easy on myself. But I'm going to focus on holding myself accountable for my TBR Pile Challenge List. My goal is to read three books, two of which come from the challenge. Honestly, I think this might be the toughest read-a-thon yet because I'm such an emotional reader. I completely choose my books based on how I feel, so this TBR Pile List is completely unappealing to me. But I'm going to do it! I haven't failed a Bout of Books yet and I don't plan on it!! :)
