I might be going on a blogging hiatus next week, but there’s no way I am going to miss the latest round of Bout of Books. With the Aurealis Awards driving Mt TBR to record-breaking heights, I need all the help I can get!

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, August 22nd and runs through Sunday, August 28th 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 17 information and updates, be sure to visit theBout of Booksblog.– From the Bout of Books team

Being a low-pressure challenge, Bout of Books lets me set my own goals. As with last time, I’m aiming to get through a minimum of three books. However, I’ve learned my lesson and will be steering clear of the chunksters! I have a ton of books I could pick from.Illuminae,The Incredible Adventures of Cinnamon Girl andBook of Lies are all on the potential list. The latter is an Aurealis submission and there are a heap more of those I could tackle. I also plan on reading my e-ARC of Peter S. Beagle’sSummerlong.

If you’d like to join in, there’s still time to sign-up!

What’s on your TBR pile this week?

April put a considerable dent in Mt TBR, but there’s plenty of work still to be done. And the best way to keep up my motivation is a reading challenge, of course!

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 9th and runs through Sunday, May 15th 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 16 information and updates, be sure to visit theBout of Booksblog.– From the Bout of Books team

Being a low-pressure challenge, Bout of Books lets me set my own goals. As I have mentioned before, I overcommitted on review books for May. So I’d like to get through a minimum of three books.Carpentaria(pictured above) by Alexis Wright is definitely on the list along with The Crying Child by Becca Lusher and Penric’s Demon by Lois McMaster Bujold. If I manage all of those, I’d like to get back to my reread of Ursula Le Guin’sThe Earthsea Quartet.
