I love Read-a-Thons as they push my kids and I to get extra reading time in during the day and to finish all the books on our summer reading list. Not much has changed since my update post a few days ago as the weekend was busy and did not offer up much free time to read. Plus my son came home sick from Boy Scout camp and I had to take him to urgent care. Poor guy.
Luckily, Georgia and I both accomplished our reading goals. I finished three books and Georgia, my daughter finished two.
Here are our book stats: Georgia finished,
1. No Such Thing as Dragons by Philip Reeve
2. Smile by Raina Tegemeier
She started a 3rd book called One Hundred Dresses by Eleanor Estes.
1. Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier
2. Olive Kitteridge by Elizabeth Strout
3. The Homecoming of Samuel Lake by Jenny Wingfield
MINI-CHALLENGE WINNER IS: Srivalli @Valli's Book Den blog
Each participant had to take one aspect of the book they were reading and show an illustration/picture/photo for it. Then they briefly explained the connection to the book.
The winner, Srivalli did her mini-challenge on Dracula by Bram Stroker.
Thanks to everyone who participated in the mini-challenge and thanks to Michelle at The True Book Addict for hosting!
