Bout of Books 40 Wrap-Up

 Congratulations!

You have survived Bout of Books 40!

In this post, we invite you to link up to your overall progress for Bout of Books. You don't have to create a wrap-up post--it can be an update post with day 7's progress.

Whatever works for you, works for us.

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

Here are important informational nuggets you probably want to know:

Bout of Books 41 will be from August 19th to August 25th.

Following this blog is the BEST way to stay up to date on EVERYTHING.

Seriously, follow us here for the latest news. You can also follow our the Bout of Books Instagram account where we count down the weeks until the next Bout of Books or you can join the Discord to talk books between readathons.

Once again, thank you to everyone who helped make Bout of Books 40 a success! We appreciate that you love books and how vocal you are about sharing it!

-Kelly and Amanda
