Since we all love recommending books, here's your chance to share the love.
Example: If you like paranormal romance with bloodthirsty vikings, try Shelly Laurenston's Call of Crows series.
Make sure you use the hashtag #boutofbooks on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook, so we can see your recs.


The way these updates work is that you post your progress for the previous day (today's link should be to your progress for the third day of the read-a-thon). Please include a DIRECT LINK to your update post.

If you have questions, please tweet us @boutofbooks or email us (boutofbooks at gmail dot com).
