As part of this creativity challenge I am participating in a read-a-thon at Bout of Books. I have signed up already over at Joyful Jottings where I will be making most of my posts but one of the things that this creativity challenge has done for me is to take me out of my comfort zone with reading. I am reading more and I am reading a variety. In addition, I am reacting - publicly - to these reads.
If I am not "making" things, at least I am getting more involved in the book. My reading isn't a passive exercise. I am putting more of myself into the story and then getting more out for myself.
I am excited about the challenge. I can't wait to see how I progress. I have some lofty goals, one of which is to read the books I have on hand. I will not buy another book, or download one on Kindle, or check out one from the library. I am going to knock off some of the ones here gathering dust.
I will probably do lots of cross-over posts but that's OK. I am writing.
These are near the top of my stack. These have been around a while!
The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, May 9th and runs through Sunday, May 15th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 16 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team
