I have been in an awful slump since the beginning of the year, having read, if I’m lucky, one book a month. I can only remember once that this has happened to me whereas I was in a slump this long. I know part of the problem is that I have been very busy with VBTs. I have tried different things to get me in the reading mood again, even signing up for a couple of Read-A-Thons in hopes that it would jump start my lack of desire to read, but it didn’t work. But I’m not giving up.
Bout of Books is hosting a read-a-thon, May 13th thru May 19th, with sign ups today and I plan to participate. Will this help? I think so especially since this will be taking place while I am on vacation and have already packed what books will be coming along.
Want to join this read-a-thon? Click on the link above and sign up. From the Bout of Books site:
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, May 13th and runs through Sunday, May 19th 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 7.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team.
