Bout of Books 11 – Intro and Day One Challenges

Bout of Books


Introduce Yourself to Your Fellow #boutofbooks-ers

To kick off the read-a-thon, we’re doing something a little different. We’re hosting an informal challenge. Take a picture of yourself with your reading pile, your reading companions, the Bout of Books tagline (Are you ready to get your read on?), or anything else that will let us get to know YOU! Upload it to any social media site with the #boutofbooks hashtag and CONNECT with other readers!

Balsamo2I don’t do selfies. I don’t even have the proper equipment. Instead, here’s my BoB TBR pile with my rendering of Balsamo the Talking Skull.

My reading tastes are a tad off-center and I currently have a preoccupation with stage magic and its history. Don’t worry. Balsamo is a friendly chap and I don’t bite either. 🙂


Challenge! – Bout of Books Scavenger Hunt

Book Scavenger Hunt, hosted by The Book Monsters

Book Scavenger Hunt:

Challenge! – Playlist

Playlist, hosted by LuLo FanGirl

Make a playlist centered around at least ONE of the books you plan on reading during the read-a-thon.

My playlist for The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay. Full of swinging goodness.
