It's time for the next Bout of Books.   It will be the ninth time Jenn and I have taken part in it.  This one will be a little more of a challenge for me as I am traveling on business Monday - Thursday so I am not sure if I will be able to post updates.   The good news is I get two flights of 3 1/2 hours to read :)

The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda Shofner and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, August 21st and runs through Sunday, August 27th 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 20 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team.
