Reading like a madman mad about books (Bout of Books 10)

Remember how nervous I was about Japanese classes? Well, of course, it turned out fine. I’m one month into class, it’s the right level for me, and I don’t feel like a complete idiot.

But enough of that.

I just wanted to let you all know I’ll be using my blog to make updates about a week-long read-a-thon I’ll be participating in next week called Bout of Books. I just made a video saying I wasn’t going to be participating, but I can’t stay away!

So, what is Bout of Books? Well…

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 12th and runs through Sunday, May 18th 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 10 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team

I will post more specific goals for the read-a-thon soon, and I’ll also be using my Twitter (and YouTube?) account to make updates during the week. I hope some of you will join me in upping your reading output!

  1. LOVE LOVE LOVE your video! You’re hilarious!
    I’m THIS CLOSE to starting my own channel as well, as a place to put my comedy and test jokes out. You should go to Maruzen next time you’re in Nagoya. My ex and I used to go for (tres romantic) “stand and read” dates there, where we’d say goodbye at the door and go stand and read books for 2 hours. Then eat at the KFC next door afterwards. AHHHHH romance…

    • Thanks so much! ;w;

      YOU SHOULD DO IT! I would watch the heck out of your channel. XD And having some stand-up under your belt seems like it’d be a big help!

      That sounds like a pretty awesome date idea to me, haha. I used to go to Maruzen but never with my husband. Something for next time!
