Bout of Books 15 has ended but the fun doesn't stop until the Grand Prize Winner is announced!


And the Winner is...
Melissa @ Superbookworm
Melissa's winning entry came from being a Bout of Books 15 participant.
Congratulations, Melissa!
Keep your eye on your inbox, you'll be receiving an email from Bout of Books soon!

We'd like to thank everybody who signed up and participated in the read-a-thon. We're always striving to make this event the best it can be and we couldn't do that without your enthusiastic participation.

Please note that the challenge hosts are responsible for notifying winners and announcing prizes on their own blogs for the mini-challenges.

For those that are interested in helping out for the next Bout of Books, we post a call for help roughly a month prior to the start of the read-a-thon - which will be around April 11th for Bout of Books 16. Keep an eye on this blog for that announcement.

Once again, thank you to everyone who helped make Bout of Books 15 a success! We appreciate that you love books and how vocal you are about sharing it!

-Kelly and Amanda
