For the fourth year in a row during the month of May we will be challenging you to get those advanced reading copies read! These can be e-arc’s, finished copies, audio and physical arcs. (regardless of release date) As an added bonus you will be able to schedule advanced reviews and free up your time to enjoy the warmer weather. To make things fun there will be 24 hour readathon and a grand prize for a 2016 release.

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 9th and runs through Sunday, May 15th 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 16 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team
I haven’t yet decided on the books for each challenge, but needless to say there will be overlap. Though I am planning to read only galleys in May, there is a little pile of books by my bedside that has also been calling my name; I might reserve reading those during the BoutofBooks events. This is mostly a sign-in/getting-the-word-out post, so hopefully you (yes, you reading right now) will also join in and we can do what we love most – enjoy reading books. Bookworms Unite!
