Happy Friday, bibliophiles, and otaku dragons!
Today I am going to be announcing my unofficial participation in the Bout of Books 22 readathon and sharing the stack of books I plan on reading during the event! The reason that I say my partaking is unofficial is that I am not going to be signing up to do any of the daily writing challenges and I do not have any desire in trying to win any prizes. My sole purpose for joining is to READ! I want to read, read, read this upcoming week, and really focus on tackling my bamboo-esque TBR (to be read) tower.
Bout of Books is a readathon that runs for a week and was originally created by Amanda Shofner in August 2011. Since then, it has exploded into a fantastic event for bibliophiles all over the world to take part in together. One of the best parts about this readathon is that there are no reading challenges in it. The sole goal is to read more than you normally would and to have fun with it. It allows the readathon to be personalised in terms of speed and difficulty to each individual bookworm. For me, that is super inclusive and fantastic.
If you would like more information on the Bout of Books 22, want to sign up officially for a chance at all the goodies, want to check out Amanda’s blog, etc., you can do so by clicking this link thingymajiggy right here!
You can see my TBR for Bout of Books 22 in the following photos. If you’d like more info on the books from the first two photos on the left, please check out my February Book Haul and Impromptu Used Books Book Haul posts!
The other two are ones I checked out from the library this past week. The first is part of a Japanese manga series that spotlights Japanese cuisine, with each volume focusing on one specific dish type; this one is on vegetables. The second is a book that recounts the experiences of the Japanese people in Hiroshima fifteen years after the bomb dropped in World War II.
If you are taking part, please share some of your TBR picks with me in the comments section. I’d love to know what y’all are reading!
