Bout of Books 12 (@BoutofBooks)

Bout of Books

'Ello lovelies.  I wasn't sure if I was going to have time to participate in this round of Bout of Books goodness but ya know what?  I've decided to go all in.  If I don't have time then I don't have time but, I'm going to give it a good ol' college try.  Here's the 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 at 12:01am on Monday, January 5th and runs through Sunday, January 11th 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 12 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog.
