Well, you have to wait for just a few moments longer. First, we have some VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATION for you.

Our standard info:

  • Bout of Books is a week long read-a-thon, run from 12:01am on Monday, January 7th through 11:59pm Sunday, January 13th in whatever time zone you are in.
  • Bout of Books is low pressure, meaning participants are only asked to push themselves to read more than they normally would during any given week. There is no competition between readers.
  • How much time a reader wants, and can commit, to read, tweet, or network with fellow bloggers is left to individual preference. All challenges and giveaways are optional.
  • Networking with fellow bloggers is actively encouraged, though never required. 
  • Use Twitter to post updates throughout the read-a-thon. Everyone will be tweeting with the #boutofbooks hashtag.
  • Follow @boutofbooks for all important announcements. We preemptively answer a lot of questions you may have, so please check our Twitter timeline. During the read-a-thon, we post these announcements at a specific time (generally twice a day)--times will be posted on this blog.

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, January 7th and runs through Sunday, January 13th 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 6.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books 6.0 team

Fine print: In order to qualify for any of the challenges and giveaways, you must have your goals posted somewhere. Signing up for Bout of Books just to enter giveaways is not cool and if it appears that you have done so, we reserve the right to disqualify your entry.
