Bout of Books 33

Bout of Books

Bout of Books 33, Jan 3–Jan 9

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

It’s Bout of Books! What a great way to start the year! My goal is read about 600 pages and get to one of the Twitter chats.

In Our Own Worlds cover
Beowulf cover
On the Art of Writing cover
Masterpieces of Terror and the Unknown cover

I plan on finishing In Our Own Worlds, which is an anthology of four novellas. I started the third, A Taste of Honey by Kai Ashante Wilson, last night. Then on to Beowulf or Moby Dick, neither of which will help my backlog, but I’ve been itching to reread both. My morning “craft” reading is On the Art of Writing by Arthur Thomas Quiller-Couch, so a chapter of that every morning and a short story a day from Masterpieces of Terror and the Unknown.
