Head on over to Ramblings From Life for details on this Summer Reading Challenge started by Alexis Jacobs. Also check out Erin's blog to see the picture she has posted with all the books she is planning on reading this summer.
This isn't a contest or a race -- it's simply an encouragement to read more. Post a comment on Alexis' blog to let her know how many books you are planning to read. The Challenge started on June 1st (but latecomers are welcome!) and ends on September 3rd.
I am making it my goal to read 10 books throughout the summer months (although that may quickly turn to 11, since our church is getting the newest Karen Kingsbury book in the near future, and those are always #1 priorities for me!!). I may or may not be successful in this, what with working 3 days a week and just with the busy-ness of life. But it is a good goal to strive towards. Plus, there is no penalty for not reading the books you pledge to read (there is also no reward). It is simply for fun; to entertain and challenge ourselves.
Make sure you not only let Alexis know you're participating, but let me know as well!! I got the idea of taking a picture of the books I want to read from Erin, but don't feel you need to do the same. You may not even know which books you want to read right now. I just have a bunch of books either from church or ones I have recently bought and haven't gotten around to reding yet. Maybe now I'll be more inclined to start turning those pages!!
HAPPY READING EVERYBODY!!
