Bout of Books #25 Sign-Up and Reading Plans

I’m hoping I can read up a storm this week during Bout of Books #25.

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, May 13th and runs through Sunday, May 19th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure.

A Persephone Readathon #3 Readalong?

I thought it would be fun to offer an optional readalong during this Persephone Readathon. Would you like to read and discuss the same Persephone book together over the course of the ten days?

I want this to be open to anyone who’d like to participate, so I’ve selected four Persephone titles that are available as free eBooks for you all to choose from. Take a look at their descriptions below, and vote for the one you would most like to read (or even just see the rest of us read) through the link at the bottom of the page. 

I’ll leave the link for round one active until Sunday, May 19th. Whichever two books receive the most votes will then go head to head in the final voting round.

Announcing the Persephone Readathon #3!

Since we’re almost halfway through the reading year, what could be better than a celebratory readathon?!  I’m happy to announce that the Persephone Readathon is back for a third round.

Whether this will be your first Persephone book* or your one hundredth, I hope you’ll join me for ten days of reading, reviewing, chatting, and celebrating all things Persephone.

The Persephone Readathon #3 will run from Friday, May 31st through Sunday, June 9th, 2019.

As before, this will be a laid back readathon; read as much or as little as you’d like. The goal is simply to enjoy reading and discussing all things Persephone Books.**
