Bout of Books #24 kicks off today, and I’ve decided to go along for the ride.
What is Bout of Books?
The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda Shofner and Kelly Rubidoux Apple. 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. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 24 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team
Here are my tentative reading plans for the week:
My first priority is to finish my two current reads: The Clockmaker’s Daughter by Kate Morton and A Well-Behaved Woman by Therese Anne Fowler. Ideally, I’d also love to finally finish the phenomenal tome Testament of Youth by Vera Brittain.
January seems like the perfect month to start Tiny Beautiful Things by Cheryl Strayed, and I may start Joan Didion’s essay collection Slouching Towards Bethlehem. However, don’t be be surprised if I end up tearing through Normal People by Sally Rooney instead of any of the above!
