The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda Shofner and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, January 8th and runs through Sunday, January 14th 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 21 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team
Too bad Bout of Books wasn’t last week. I was sick (just an annoying cold), but I got so much reading done! This week is going to be catchup, but hopefully I’ll still manage to read and have a little BoB fun.
- The Sorrows of Young Werther by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe – for FrankenSlam!
- The Box Jumper by Lisa Mannetti – an impulse add.
- The Secret Life of Mrs. London by Rebecca Rosenberg – an ARC
And short stories:
- “The Musgrave Ritual” by Arthur Conan Doyle
- “The Wrong Foot” by Stephanie Burgis (for Deal Me In)
- “In a Wide Sky, Hidden” by William Ledbetter
