Bout of Books Readathon January 2022

I just learned about the Bout of Books Readathon this week and decided to find out more about it. Here is what it’s all about:

The Bout of Books readathon is organized by Amanda Shofner and Kelly Rubidoux Apple. It’s a weeklong readathon that begins 12:01am Monday, January 3rd and runs through Sunday, January 9th in YOUR time zone. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are reading sprints, Twitter chats, and exclusive Instagram challenges, but they’re all completely optional. For all Bout of Books 33 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team

So this is a very nice, relaxed no pressure readathon. You can visit the page to find out more about it. But basically, as long as you are reading, that’s what matters. How long, how much is completely up to you.

This kind of readathon is just my style. I like that it’s relaxed and laid back and I can make the schedule of how and what I read. The challenge starts at 12:01 Monday January 3rd and will end Sunday January 9th. So most likely, I will probably either be picking one of my Japanese Literature Challenge books or Beartown by Fredrik Backman. In the Modern Mrs. Darcy Book Club in January, it’s pick-your-own-title month. The MMD team presented a list of 6 titles that have been previously read in the book club and each member gets to pick whichever title(s) they want to read or re-read, whichever the case may be. I have chosen to read Beartown because I am a huge Backman fan and I haven’t read this one yet. I also may re-read This Must Be the Place by Maggie O’Farrell for a second choice. We’ll see!

Happy Reading!
