Bout of Books 30 Day 6

Here is the schedule of events for today:

For the remainder of the readathon, the @boutofbooks Twitter account will not be posting reading-in-place reminders and check-ins or readathon announcements. The @boutofbooks Instagram will not post daily photo challenges.

Reading-in-place times and Instagram photo challenge prompt are posted here, and we encourage you to participate if you want to. Our experts may also be hosting their own reading-in-place times. And you can still say "Hi!" to us on the @boutofbooks Twitter and Instagram accounts.

Instagram Photo a Day

For those of you who use Instagram, don't forget to post your daily Bout of Books photo. Today's prompt is Future Vision. Share which books you're excited to read. It can be a book that's publishing this year or a book that's been a while and you've been meaning to read. Use the hashtag #BoB30IGPhoto 

Twitter Chat Information

There is a Twitter chat today at 11 a.m. Eastern | 8 a.m. Pacific
The chat will be led by Sarah (@reviewsandRaTs) and Kai (@YogiKai)

The chat will last one hour. We will use the Q1/A1 system. The host asks the questions using Q1, Q2, and so on. You respond using A1, A2. EASY!


The way these updates work is that you post whatever you want your fellow readathoners to see TODAY. Whether that's your progress for the previous day, your reading-in-place report, an incredibly witty tweet about the book you're reading, or a hygge reading picture you posted on Instagram, link it here. The linky will be open for 24 hours. There will be another linky tomorrow. Please include a DIRECT LINK to your update so we don't have to go clicking around to find it.

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