Guest Post – Relationships with Books

Hello! And welcome to my first ever guest post! I put a feeler out on Twitter and I was enthused to receive a few replies.😀 So cool!

Today’s guest post is brought to us by Amy! Take it away!

Guest Post - Books and Relationships

Hello everyone! A little while ago, I was on Twitter and I saw Kendra’s request for guest posts, so of course I had to check it out! I’ve known Kendra for a fairly long time, and of course, she’s super awesome. So I was thrilled when she liked the first idea for a post that I came up with!

Aaaaaaaand as usual, I’m way ahead of myself. Let’s rewind. HELLO. My name is Amy, and I blog over at Every Book You Need to Read and More! I’m a little annoying, a lot crazy, and EXTREMELY bookish! So, if for some crazy reason you’re totally in love with me (and/or my writing, that works too) by the end of this post, feel free to go follow me there!

Why Books Are Exactly Like Relationships

Bout of Books 17

Bout of Books

Hi everyone! If you’re not following me on Twitter (you should, btw), then you wouldn’t know I signed up for Bout of Books 17! You can find more info here.

If you don’t know, here’s what it’s about:

You were going to read that week anyway, right?  Read with us.

The Bout of Books Read-a-Thon was created by Amanda @ On a Book Bender on a complete whim in August 2011*. It took on a life of its own and was such a hit that Amanda decided to do it again and turn it into a somewhat regular occurrence.

  • Bout of Books is a week long read-a-thon, usually from 12:01am on a Monday through 11:59pm on a Sunday in whatever time zone you are in.
  • It is low pressure, meaning participants are only asked to push themselves to read more than they normally would during any given week. There is no competition between readers.
  • How much time a reader wants, and can commit, to read, tweet, or network with fellow bloggers is left to individual preference. All challenges and giveaways are optional.
  • Networking with fellow bloggers is actively encouraged, though never required.
  • Use Twitter to post updates throughout the read-a-thon. Everyone will be tweeting with the #boutofbooks hashtag.

So that’s basically the jist. Read as much as you usually do, but read a little more. That’s it!

My goal is to read 2 books in a week! My usual is 1 book a week.

This post will be my updates post for the week.

Day 1:
