The Bout of Books readathon is organized by Amanda Shofner and Kelly Rubidoux Apple. It’s a weeklong readathon that begins 12:01am Monday, August 17th and runs through Sunday, August 23rd in YOUR time zone. Bout of Books is low-pressure. All reading-in-place times, Twitter chats, and exclusive Instagram challenges are completely optional.

I should have plenty of time to read this week, and I could do with a boost (or a good kick up the behind, if you like), so I will be “bouting” again.
This post will be updated with progress throughout the week. I will also try to participate in the Instagram-challenges, you’ll find me as @lattermild (same nick on Twitter, but I post less about books there).
Update: Well. I did read, a bit. But I completely forgot to update here. I managed to post pictures on Instagram for the first three days, and then we travelled to Oslo for a long weekend and that unravelled as well. Anyhoo, books finished during Bout of Books 29:
- Counting by 7s by Holly Goldberg Sloan
- Zalt: Dampherrenes planet by Jon Bing
- Lumberjanes: The Shape of Friendship by Noelle Stevenson, Shannon Watters, Brooklyn Allen, Grace Ellis and Lilah Sturges
Hardly terribly impressive, but not nothing. I also read a few pages of Zeshan Shakar’s new novel, Gul bok.
