 Bout of Books Read-a-Thon

I've been thinking in ways to make progress on my reading, since this year I expect to read more this year.  Today, while reading Angela's Anxious life I found about the Bout of Books read-a-thon and what a great surprise.  I decided to participate and if you want to be part of this too, just visit Bout of Books and sign up. They have many helpful links and whether your are a read-a-thon rookie like me or an expert, all the info will be really useful.  Here's some general info of the event provided by the team of Bout of Books:
  
Official Blurb
The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. 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, and the only reading competition is between you and your usual number of books read in a week. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 6.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. -From the Bout of Books 6.0 team
