For the very first time, I will be participating in a readathon – it sounds like fun, so join if you’re interested 🙂
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, May 11th and runs through Sunday, May 17th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 13 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team
Bout of Books also has some fun challenges planned. And what could be more fun than a Bookish Survey?
1. How do you organize your shelves?
I mostly read on my iPad, so not much organization is involved. I do have a separate collection for my TBR pile.
2. What is one of your favorite book that’s not in one of your favorite genres?
#GIRLBOSS by Sophia Amoruso
I am not usually into reading non-fiction, but #GIRLBOSS is truly an inspiring book that will make every girl believe that she can get what she wants if she asks for it and works for it. I found Sophia Amoruso’s narrative very no-nonsense and strong, her story very enticing.
3. What is the last 5 star book you read?
Cold Days by Jim Butcher
4. What book are you most excited to read during the read-a-thon?
Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel
5. What book do you recommend the most?
Outlander by Diana Gabaldon
Outlander is a Historical novel with the capital “H” – meticulously researched, detailed and descriptive, which makes you helplessly fall in love with the 18th century Scotland, its culture and its people.
