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.

Even though I didn't manage to read 3 hours per day, I still consider this read-a-thon a success. I read more than I usually do (even during other read-a-thons). Counting my reading in time instead of pages really works for me and it's what I will be doing in the next read-a-thons.
