Introduce Yourself to Your Fellow #boutofbooks-ers (information below)

To kick off the read-a-thon, we're doing something a little different. We're hosting an informal challenge. Take a picture of yourself with your reading pile, your reading companions, the Bout of Books tagline (Are you ready to get your read on?), or anything else that will let us get to know YOU! Upload it to any social media site with the #boutofbooks hashtag and CONNECT with other readers!

Twitter Chat Information

TZC = Time Zone Conversion
There is a Twitter chat today at 1pm CDT (TZC)
The chat will be hosted by @BookBender
@boutofbooks is on standby

The chat will last one hour. You do NOT have to follow the host. If the host gets stuck in Twitter jail, she will take over the @boutofbooks handle.

We will use the Q1/A1 system. The host ask the question using Q1, Q2, and so on. You respond using A1, A2. EASY


Remember: this linky is for linking up your goals. If you've already done that, you don't have to add your link again.

  1. Super excited to be joining in, as this is my first read-a-thon!

  2. I'm having a great day of reading so far!! I finished Breakfast At Tiffany's by Truman Capote. I even participated in the playlist challenge.

    I love Bout of Books!
