Bout of Books 19

Even though I'll be traveling during the first part of the week, I can't resist signing up for the next Bout of Books.  Let's see what I can do!  I will have some plane hours to read.  Here's the blurb from their website:

The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda Shofner and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, May 8th and runs through Sunday, May 14th 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 19 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team
