The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda Shofner and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, May 8th and runs through Sunday, May 14th 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 19 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team

I have the boxed set on my kindle and right now I am at 27%.

I was able to make a lot more progress with  A Clash of Kings (#2) and now I have about 29 more chapters left to read as my goal is to read about 5 chapters a day. Yesterday I was able to read from chapter 22-35 and this morning I met my goal of reading 5 chapters.

I am hoping to read a few more chapters this afternoon but I am not sure how much I will be able to read as I have my college graduation this evening but I am hoping to make some more progress tomorrow.
