Bout of Books 12 Sign-Up

Bout of Books
It's here again, the Bout of Books readathon and of course I'm participating! It starts on 5th of January 2015 so I will not be posting my tbr pile just yet. Here is the info of the readathon:
 
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, January 5th and runs through Sunday, January 11th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure, and the only reading competition is between you and your usual number of books read in a week. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 12 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team
